Mosaic “stripes”, capable of telling stories through signs, colors, texts, hills and depressions, can help to retrain and enhance old and deteriorated urban artifacts such as chimneys, fountains, planters, traffic bollards and so on.

"One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way. "
Vincent Van Gogh
