BlinkingCity is a unique collaboration between Marcella Campa and Stefano Avesani.

The duo used stencils of maps of rapidly transforming Hutong neighbourhoods to create this colourful abstract art. The project is known as Blinking City. So, what is Blinking City all about?

Blinking City is a project investigating the inadequacy of traditional maps for city environments characterized by fast pace transformation and urban growth. As soon as the map is done, the city it describes has already gone. We transferred one of the Blinking City pattern, based on a collage of several Hutong neighbourhoods of Beijing, onto a wall of a dilapidated courtyard house in Xianyukou district, located in the core of the city.
