How relatively powerful can be a relatively small thing? I am amazed by the radicality of the red dots, which resemble me ill or dead trees being tagged in the forest. I am trying to imagine consequences that may arise by putting such a simple but ingenious urban sign on the facade. In the complexity of a such big organism as Bucharest is for me, I find aggression of this announcement maybe necessary, but asking at the same time if the seismic risk is the only one.

Complementary to the red dot is a small homage to the sculptural poetry of the yellow gas tubes, which guide me through the city every day.
