Le quartier se définit comme une organisation collective de trajectoires individuelles;
il est la mise à disposition, pour ses usagers, de lieux ‘à proximité’ dans lesquels ceux-ci
se rencontrent nécessairement pour subvenir à leurs besoins quotidiens.
Pierre Mayol

Trajectographies starts from the gap between the reality and the map of the city.
I asked seven inhabitants of Schaarbeek, a community in Brussels,
to draw their daily routes through the neighbourhood and to take pictures along the way.
Trajectographies is stop motion map of their seven ‘routines’.
A map of seven people not acquainted with each other. A map of seven paths crossing daily.
