When Bianca Pedrina asked if I had a model to contribute to her exhibition SUPERMODELS featuring little pieces from designers and artists, I thought about the many models covering the floors I share with a 2-year-old. Many of their toys are little representations of what we adults care about. These models are often prosaic, the objects insensitive to the workings of time or weather. So this ruin of a pedestrian crossing is my little intervention along my child’s rail tracks.

At the same time, it’s a tribute to an association that was founded by Bianca and two colleagues, and whose work I’ve appreciated a lot since its launch last autumn: The Handrail Awareness Group. Every week, a newsletter with a special handrail lands in my emailaccount and reminds me to appreciate this little piece of infrastructure mediating between our bodies and our surrounding.
