Řeporyje, Prague, CZ

The railway crossing is a special place where cars, as well as pedestrians need to wait until a train passes by. Then they start up and drive or walk away. The space in between the barriers is some kind of non-place. I’ve always been frightened by the idea of being stuck in this non-place without the possibility to move. And so I have decided to add racing flags to the railway crossing as a symbol of movement and readiness. It also ironically describes the drivers who often don’t follow transport rules and drive like they are in a race.
