On Quai Romain Rolland on the right bank of the Saone near pont Maréchal Juin, Stéphane Durand and Patrick Laurino have repurposed two aerial work platforms to make giant architect’s desk lamps. Standing on opposite sides of the road, huddling beneath oversized lampshades, they tap out messages to each other in Morse code causing red and white lights to flash as if a file were being downloaded. These repurposed lamps show how much hassle it can be communicating in the city and remind us that our fast-changing urban spaces resemble a permanent building site.
