Os olhos querem o tempo

São Paulo, Brazil

We wrote two verses from the poem «Ponteio», by the São Paulo writer Alcides Villaça, in the perimeter wall of Sesc Osasco cultural center. On one side it can be read «Os olhos querem o tempo, mas as palavras já têm.” (The eyes want time, but words have it already.) And on the opposite direction it can be read “Os olhos tocan primeiro, mas as palavras por fim.” (Eyes touch first, but words finally do.) The intervention takes advantage of the singularity of the surface, made up of 248 concrete pivots, to propose the viewer a new experience while he passes by.
