In the artist’s own words: “The image seen on this Viennese crosswalk signal means much more than “Go.” In 2015, Vienna introduced a variety of same-sex and opposite-sex themed crosswalk signals at 49 intersections as a representation of openness and tolerance. This project was installed leading up to two high profile events hosted in the capital city: the 60th Annual Eurovision Song Contest and the Life Ball charity event for people with HIV or AIDS. I see this as a symbol of social and political progress achieved in the most elegant and Viennese way.”
