Roadworks explores the temporary transformation of a culturally well-defined urban space (the bus shelter) through new functional and aesthetic possibilities (small art galleries). The premise takes the ad space typically reserved for paying corporations and invites artists to ‘fill’ the space with audio-visual installations. The one month ‘occupation’ tests the idea of architecture’s possibility to change our experience and how we use a space. One example of an experiential shift was the ‘Karaoke Kong’ bus stop which had people actively singing (NYC popup pianos).
