Social Distancing Turned Into Art

In efforts to enforce social distancing, many public places in Singapore have used tape to mark out areas where people should or shouldn’t be. These markings include a variety of lines and shapes, such as circles or crosses. Unexpectedly, the markings have produced some aesthetic patterns in public spaces. I really like how simple the patterns are and how the repetition of shapes creates a unique geometric design. It’s also interesting how the bold colors contrast against the environment, especially when the tape is used in ares with more greenery such as parks.
