NO-ROCKET — Walk&Talk Azores — Trilha — São Miguel, Portugal
Trilha is part of the residency project that NO-ROCKET developed at Walk&Talk Azores 2016. The intervention is focused on ‛O Quarteirão’ a specific neighbourhood of the city of Ponta Delgada, the capital of São Miguel, main island of the Azorean archipelago. Considered as the ‛creative neighbourhood’ of the town, O Quarteirão is a system of micro-realities within Ponta Delgada city center.
Combining freely the patterns of the azulejos in groups of four tiles, the colors of Quarteirão are then brushed one by one to create this symbols. Similar to mountain Trail Signs (in portuguese ‘trilha’, from which the name of the project is taken), the purpose of each symbol is to mark the streets and identify a new developing area of the city, visualising its change towards the new cultural center of Ponta Delgada.
