Traffic Jam #1 Proposal

While walking in Sao Paulo I could not helped but to notice the strong resemblance of the pixação writings on the buildings to hieroglyphic text. The city looked to me like an urban manuscript. DownSide UP SideDown recreates the excitement, vertigo and challenges of the acrobatic Pixadores of Sao Paulo. I decide to create my own video Pichelção by recording parts of SP, using a spinning and flying video camera to capture the city in rhythmic fragmentations caused by the random and unexpected recordings.
