In Lines Made by Walking, Ilyse Iris Magy leads epic urban walks to locations along the city’s waterfront, marking points of interest from both predetermined and spontaneous criteria. Through rigorous physical charting as well as visual representation, Magy facilitates the collective mapping of our relationship to the landscape, both internal and external. Walks are open to the public; sign up at linesmadebywalking.com.
Miguel Arzabe’s Sightlines is an exploration of sites encircling San Francisco’s tallest building, the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. Arzabe traces sightlines to the Pyramid from various locations satisfying three conditions: They 1) are accessible by foot on public lands; 2) sit at equal elevation to the tower’s apex; and 3) have an unobstructed line of sight. From this map Arzabe conceived a codex composed of interlocking concrete tablets. He will lead trips to the sites and embed these tablets into the earth. Arzabe will announce the trips as the month unfolds; follow @storefrontlab on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
