Artist @theurbangeog made a real-life version of Streetsblog Chicago cartoonist Jonathan Roth's social-distancing device to illustrate the need to open streets for walking during the pandemic. Using the power of performance art to demand more space. Rotzstain’s video of Gadda wearing his “social distancing machine” — a plastic and rubber barrier that puts two meters of distance between the wearer and anyone he passes — quickly went viral among safe streets advocates. A handful of local leaders agreed with their message.
Looking at our town, could we even keep 6' apart while walking the streets?
