Isabelle Gressel

Water Pathway (2011)

Using materials that are already present in the Stockholm winter landscape, Gressel created a temporary pathway along a public walkway on April 8th, 2011.

During the 1h30 it takes for the path to disappear, Gressel documents the pedestrians as they choose to navigate or ignore the temporary path. Examining how we react to unusual yet unthreatening structures in our daily life, this piece questions our split-second decisions.
