The Pavement

Joe Reinsel's avatar Joe Reinsel

-" A sidewalk by itself is nothing" -"Steets and their sidewalks, the main public places of a city, are it most vital organs. Think of a city and what comes to mind? Its streets" - Jane Jacobs. Inspired by the writings of Jane Jacobs and her work, "The Death and Life of Great American Cities" I have created a work that brings her words directly to the sidewalk. Hearing these excerpts while walking in downtown Grand Rapids adds a new vantage point to understand her text. This audio walk invites people to walk and listen. I will place 5 audio recordings around downtown Grand Rapids. Each are marked with a distinct branding that people will find out on the street using a smartphone and a QR decoder application. Narration by WYPR-Baltimore radio producer, Aaron Henkin
