BUS STOP HOPPING
New Lines of Wiener Linien by Natalie Deewan
Public Art Project: Graffiti Recycling + Coded Quotes
Texts by children and teenagers from the Youth Center 5erHaus, 1050 Vienna, set from the Heterotypia Sign Vienna font onto 10 bus stops along the line 12A between Eichenstrasse and Längenfeldgasse.
In the course of the last months, Natalie Deewan spent a lot of time in the Youth Center 5erHaus, right behind Matzleinsdorfer Platz in the 5th district of Vienna. Within the scope of a writing workshop, a newly developed script was put in use: the Heterotypia Sign Vienna. This font consists of roughly 150 non-literal, informal signs that had been collected mainly in the area around the youth center. The texts produced in 5erHaus were the basis of the installations applied on 10 bus stops along the line 12A between Eichenstrasse and Längenfeldgasse.
