ABOUT THIS ARTWORK: A.P.POLO - ROAD
A.P.Polo - "Road" - Hamburg (Germany) - New Media Art/Digital Art.
Abstract, contemporary work of art which, despite its paradoxical representation through circular structures, leaves the viewer with the impression of a street. A road is a land-based transport structure that serves as the basis for vehicles and pedestrians, primarily for transporting people and their payloads from one place to another. Therefore the connection between the two places is ideally direct. In practice, however, the course of the road follows a hierarchy (road network) and is also influenced by the shape of the terrain. The road extends mainly and purposefully in one dimension (length) and approximates mainly to the natural course of the terrain, provided that the radii of curvature of the road, which are appropriate to the intended maximum vehicle size and speed, allow a course close to the surface. Otherwise, it shall pass through tunnels or over bridges. In width and depth (foundation) it may be adapted to the weight, quantity (traffic volume) and degree of cross-linking of the intended vehicles. There have been many reasons to build roads throughout history: They provided access to food and shelter, served as routes for seasonal migration, as processional roads, for pilgrimages or for trade.
The roads as we know them today developed from roads of antiquity, the so-called old roads. Social and economic developments led to the introduction of vehicles, which further increased the volume of traffic. In the course of social differentiation, roads were also needed for access to work, education and entertainment. However, military and state policy considerations were the most common motive for road construction. The first military vehicles (chariots) were developed around 2500 BC. From then on, roads were an important tool for attack and defence, and many rulers spent considerable resources on their construction and maintenance.
The earliest evidence to date of orderly road construction, planned as a chessboard, can be found in the Bronze Age between 2600 and 1800 BC in the Harappa or Indus culture. In the first Indian high culture, which had extensive trade relations as far away as the Near East and the Mediterranean, there were already paved roads in cities such as Harappa or Mohenjo-Daro which had a sewage system. The oldest preserved paved road in the world is the quarry road at Lake Qarun in Egypt, which is dated to around 2600-2100 BC.
In the Assyrian Empire (the area around Mesopotamia), a royal road was built along which caravanserais or road stations were located at regular intervals.
The Achaemenid royal road, which was built by Darius I in the 5th century BC, led from Susa via Persepolis and Pasargadae to Sardes. The king had this road built for fast communication within his huge empire. A section of the royal road was excavated at Naqsch-e Rostam, it was about 5 m wide and paved.
The magnificent processional road (Aj-ibur-shapu) to the Ishtar Gate in Babylon was created under Nebuchadnezzar II until 562 BC. In its layout and execution it differed considerably from the road construction of that time. The paving of the road consisted of relief-glazed stones, which were already laid on a bed of asphalt at that time. The Ishtar Gate was part of the walls of Babylon, which until its destruction belonged to the seven wonders of the ancient world.
As neighbours of the Romans, the Etruscans built paved roads up to 15 metres wide - with pedestrian crossings - in their cities, as in the well-researched Marzabotto in the Apennines. There was a water pipe under the streets. The city's chessboard-like street network served as a model for Italian architects later in the Renaissance.
As in other advanced civilizations before, the Greek and Roman cities had city streets to access the individual insulae. The Romans built roads mainly for military purposes in order to move troops to the borders of the Roman Empire as quickly as possible.
The British engineer John McAdam had long been involved in road construction. In 1815 he had the first gravel road built near Bristol. The road bed was higher than the surrounding fields so that rainwater could drain away, it had a substructure of coarse gravel, above it a layer of smaller stones and was fortified with slag. This construction proved so successful that it quickly spread to other countries. The name McAdam was the origin of the word "macadam", which was still used for this type of road construction.
In Central Europe, the old roads were not replaced by country roads until about 1850, when Guglielminetti covered an old gravel road near Monte Carlo with a tarred surface in 1902, which then became the roads as we know them today. Especially in more recent times, "new" roads were also invented in order to better market them to tourists. These are the holiday roads, which often have a connection to the old roads.
