Tran / s-Humancias, is an intervention project around the idea of the city as a place of human flows, a stateless place where, through the use of a seismograph, a sound cartography of the spaces will be generated. It will reflect on the paths of maximum affluence and minimum sponsorship, recording the micro-earthquakes that generate the resonances produced by the mass movement. The reflection of the work converges on the utility of the public space, transit zones and orphan zones, reviewing alienated sociological movements, alternating and modifying personal journeys, without being aware of the transits, revealing the true transhumance of the 21st century.
This work aims to reflect on the human condition and its paths from the concept of Alienation as a fundamental part and is studied under the imposition / construction of public space and its development as a socio-economic space within contemporary society.
One of the fundamental concepts of this project that revolves around the idea of the city, its inhabitants and the migratory movements that occur in them every day, is that of transhumance. A specific part of the title is the keyword Tran / s-humancia that acquires two meanings in oneself. One from the sociological side, of transhumanism, the ideological and cultural movement that aims at the transformation of the human condition through the development of technology and that allows the development of human capacities in the psychological, physical and intellectual. This current speculates with the idea of the transformation of the human being into a being with high capabilities, worthy of the post-human label. As a result of this relationship between man and technology, the other reflection of the project arises: the idea of the human being as a walker, creator of journeys, an eventual migrator from day to day, who for reasons external to his human condition, is directed every day towards a series of predetermined routes, which are nothing more than metaphors of the transhumances that the beasts make in the rural environment.
If we reflect on the idea of pedestrian spaces we enter a world where there are obvious issues. Is the public space, the space dedicated to the pedestrian, built for the purpose of revitalizing the city and collective enjoyment? Or on the other hand, are we finding that the construction and reconversion of public space in front of people is dogmatized from the prism or the idea of channeled space, a space that is directed towards specific centers, places and destinations created for other purposes?
We can see how today the channeling of public space dedicated exclusively to the pedestrian, focuses on large cities in the creation of commercial streets, large avenues with a conventional purpose, away from the idea of public space for enjoyment. Within the vanity of the spatial element itself, the Urbibus, Humanitatis, Migratio project. Tran / s-humancias of the 21st century, reflects on the specific utility of these spaces.
Streets, roads and avenues are crowded with alienated masses in specific time zones, in a decadent migratory dance towards a socio-economic convention. A few hours later these same spaces derive in orphaned places for which not a soul transits, abandoned and left on the side of the city. People flee in great masses back to the anthills from where they left hours before, leaving a hollow vacuum in the heart of the cities. The mirajes and the idea of the desertification of the urban space appear.
