Sky Watch Friday - Laneways by George - The Urban Barcode
Part way along Abercrombie Lane, suspended white fluorescent tubes represent the bar code to Jan Gehl's book 'Life Between Buildings'. Beneath this suspended code lies another bar code painted in black - 'Two or Three Things I Know About Her', by Jean-Luc Godard.
The two codes frame a space of dialogue on the City and create the opportunity for one to engage with it. Alongside graphic and sculptural installations, Abercrombie Lane is home to a pocked sized open air cinema, screening films that promote dialogue about the nature of our cities.
