JODI, Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans present work-in-progress on a new project for Rotterdam:

The Navigator(TM) writes a message on the map.(Walk-a-Letter) (Bike-a-Word) (Drive-a-Book) (Swim-a-Smiley :) The trajectories form sentences in time. (Blue follows Black) How long does it take for an anonymous scooter to drive a legible word? The map of Rotterdam can display a thousand storyboards. (This way#Red - Walk#Green) How to read/write this book while in motion. (Roadmovie-Between the Lines- Passagenwerk) A:"Drive slowly to your work-Turn Right". A long text to go on a mobile screen. (GPSaccounting-Time) Numbers in the White Pages® of public transport. (La Linea-Bookmark/ Landmark- Latitude:Longitude) The irregular citygrid shapes a trembling %Local fontstyle. Through the urgent handwriting (follow my footsteps) a text appears. (Ink on wheels) WHOIS writing/driving the city and WHEREAMI in the story (Alphaville-Storyville-Dogville) Can Pattern recognition on these unreadable maps help me find directions? How to unscramble Haiku-maps? Am i on a journey in a message? An age long mess of roadworks, the Library of the street (Order-Dialect-Slang- Obscene- SMS) To read your line, call this website anytime. Find a secret trace in the shopping crowd. The irregular "structure" of streets (SOS), and its access resolution, determines how/where the writing layout takes place. (Map-layers vs alined page) Start-a-thread.
