Lust - Re(x)Cursion Five graphic design studios were invited to create site specific urban interventions bound by the Experimenta Design biennale’s theme Useless, in one of downtown Lisbon’s most central squares. Triggered by varying instances of scale and volume, detail and emptiness, architecture features and superficial embellishments, the resulting interventions establish a dialogue with the chosen sites.
We designed and installed 8 giant pictures on the square, citing and playing on the impression you get when looking at a city through Google Streetview. QR-codes provided mobile access to an online environment where visitors can upload their own “picture-in-picture” and browse the archive of previously taken photos.

Design based on the H4 marine chronometer by John Harrison. A lifetime’s work that finally paid off.
