Mapping Main Street →

There’s at least a Main Street in any American village, town, city and metropolis and each Main street is never the same. This is a collaborative documentary media project to build a new map of the country through stories, photos and videos recorded on actual Main Streets.

Who says that spray cans are not for elderly people? The project LATA 65 will threaten your certainties with a wink. Because street art is not a matter of age but a form of culture and participation within the life of cities. Held in Lisbon (Portugal), the workshop engaged a group of “beginners” and taught the basics and techniques of street art.

Dinettes
by Benjamin Charles, Simon Joyau, Thibault Vallet (France)

Dinettes is the opposite of the idea of a massive, energy consuming food truck. It is made of two trolleys which contain all the equipment. To create a compact, lightweight structure to be easily carried around, during the assemblage the trolleys make up the basic structural parts of the entire set. Thanks to its flexibility, Dinettes is very adaptable to cook different kinds of food (hotdogs, BBQ…).

La Cheminambuleby Amandine Lagut and Charlotte Thon (France)
A mobile hearth, a travelling totem, a beacon in the town, a tool of conviviality.Through time and seasons, fire has always symbolised conviviality: whether it be around a fireplace, a barbecue or a beach campfire, fire is symbol of social harmony.
A travelling chimney for urban spaces, in order to provide comfort through exchange and sharing. Its modularity makes it possible to adapt to all kinds of urban spaces: a town hall or public square, a street corner… It is intended to be used by all types of organizations wishing to invest urban space: private persons, associations, municipalities, NGOs…

Juicy Cycling by Olga Goloshchapova, Olga Becker, Borko Horvat (Germany-Russia-Kazakhstan)
Juicy Cycling is a “pedal-powered” Fresh Juice Bar. Through recycling old bicycles connected to a centrifuge, a glass of freshly-squeezed juice can be obtained in only a few minutes. The idea of the project is to construct a Fresh Juice Bar with a real-time action, involving the public of the area. The bar is constructed of recycled materials, such as old bikes and cable reels. One single module contains a personal seat at the pedal machine combined with a table and a juice squeezer.
