  KISS INVASION
  June 18, 2002. Madrid (Spain)

 

  100 couples, spread out among the crowds, kissed simultaneously around the city center.  Noise levels on the streets unexpectedly plummeted during that moment of mass intimacy.

All the kisses started at the same time and also ended more or less at the same time. Afterward, the couples moved to a nearby area to repeat the action. Five ten-minute long kisses in a row in a two-hour period, with a fifteen-minute break between kisses.

The routes, as well as the couples’ locations, had been planned out beforehand. Preliminary studies were carried out to check density, pedestrian traffic flow and timetables, in order to ensure the desired ratio of kissing couples: a kissing couple for every seven pedestrians.


An mmmm... action for Istituto Europeo di Design.
