For one month in late 2015, at Ermont-Eaubonne railway station, in the Paris region, travelers became part of a surprising experiment: an installation composed of hourglasses that reacted to their movements, inviting travelers to take a break in their daily commute to consider the acceleration of daily life. Here, we take a look at Texel, an experimental project at the crossroads of interactive art and the humanities.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will sadly be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise around €20,000 ($25,000). We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible.
