SYNOPSIS

The idea of ​​intervention arises from the question of the discourse of time in a modern society. This has "shrunk" at the mental level and it seems that 24 hours a day is no longer enough to perform all the tasks required by the pace of modern life. As a metaphor of the economy of time in the public space, I summarize the shortcuts - human traces across grass surfaces created with the aim of faster crossing. I intervene next to existing shortcuts by making 'longcut'. It is technically a transfer of Richard Long's land art intervention into an urban area within a changed context. So, 'longcut' is created by walking forward and backward along the same path. It starts and ends at the same point as the shortcut and thus becomes an alternative to the alternative. Passengers can decide which route they will take. If one chooses 'longcut', one finds oneself in the absurd situation of tracing the curve over a grassy surface that no longer has anything in common with the shortcut's function. The gesture of walking forward and backward is at the same time a performative act that resists to constant hurry and is meditative in nature. (Source: Danilo Milovanović)
