Reprogramming Traffic Lights in Italy

As part of my work with Venice’s neighboring city of Jesolo, Italy, a set of traffic lights are being reprogrammed to become an interactive game of tic tac toe that the public can play.




The city of Jesolo asked me to create a design strategy and serve as design director for implementing it through the city’s public design projects.

Working with a team of students from London’s Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design and an assembled team of Italian and international designers, architects and artists, Made of Jesolo worked with three of the city’s underutilized public spaces, the city’s functional urban materials, and the skill sets of local businesspeople, tradespeople, and municipal crews to create three new projects, made in Jesolo, and Made of Jesolo.
