Toulouse, Place de la Daurade

This grassy square faces the Garonne River. It is a favourite spot for a weekend stroll. The municipality has laid down a large, tiled axonometric plan of the centre of town, in sufficient detail that each house can be identified.

When the picture first displays, the space is empty. Double click to bring the people on - or to remove them.

The passage of time is transformed into a single, forever remixing moment, as each person on the plan slurs randomly into their temporal neighbours. Those photographed are, at the same time, self conscious because of the proximity of the camera, and absorbed with their study of the city's plan.

Hold the mouse down to freeze the instant.
