Can public transportation and memorial practices be combined? The Sentiment Station project particularly touched the members of the jury with its reinterpretation of transportation spaces as true public spaces. The idea is to keep in memory the traces and impacts of the pandemic through a series of devices that could be adapted to the various configurations of existing stations. These devices act as time capsules that establish multiple meanings and do not hesitate to confront the difficult question of mortality. They offer an opportunity to enter other temporal dimensions especially while waiting for the bus, a time most often perceived as unproductive. This project is poignant and well constructed, right down to the narratives and documents provided in the 3 posters. Critical or poetic, this project is based on evocative principles that mobilize a commemorative aesthetic. The public space, thus requalified, offers an emotional as well as physical journey.
