The Streetpanters is a bunch of friends who started slapping orange stickers on cars, after walking around Athens had become a living hell.
"There is absolutely no respect for the pedestrians, the sidewalks and zebra crossings are occupied by cars, walking is no more a legitimate means of transportation. So, we decided that we waited long enough for the state, the local authorities and the police to wake up. It was time for action. Whoever doesn’t comply, pays the price on the spot."
They handed out more than 250,000 stickers depicting a donkey in a car above the message, “I park wherever I want” ... a self-adhesive reminder for inconsiderate drivers to respect those who commit the unforgivable crime of walking.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
