Alÿs, Francis, 1959-
"In 'Pacing,' the artist drew invisible figures through pubic space as a form of imaginary architecture… In the aftermath of 9/11, along the desolate streets of downtown Manhattan, his aimless deambulation brought him some consolation, for as he pointed in his notes a decade before: 'As long as I'm walking, I'm not thinking.'" – Cuauhtemoc Medina. Reproduction of a sketchbook that explores the idea of steps as measurement and the derive - the aimless wandering of a flaneur - as urban planning. Includes penciled notes, numbers, and diagrams on graph paper. Text in English and Spanish.
