I tried to draw and link the faces to make connections between the commuters.
organdie and coloured metallic threads and cutwork ?
Add some other metallic surfaces ? some parts could be more stitched. Use stronger wires on top ?
Once the solufleece is dissolved could I apply some faces on a fabric and put closer some faces allowing some of the threads to flow ?

I finally decided to use Cotton organdie because I could stitch on this transparent fabric without a loop if I stretched it with my hands. It gave me more freedom.
|I machine stitched the lines with metallic threads|
I also had to decide how to display this long strip.
Could it stand upright like in #11, maybe with some wire on the top and on the bottom? Or could it simply be hanged on the wall ? People would have to walk to read the strip.
I could also make a flutter book. In that case I would have to consider what would the cover look like. Maybe an embossed metallic surface ?

I added some metallic surfaces to enhance the faces. Some shapes made copper foil 0.001 were appliquéed. I felt it gave some rhythm to the long strip.
|I chose to emphasize the red line with zigzag stitch|
|The strip stands upright thanks to the metallic copper wire I zigzag stitched on the top and the bottom|
|From time to time I allowed the red metallic thread to float over the surface|
|The transparent fabric allows to see the faces from both sides|
|I can give this strip any shape but I like this meandering shape|
