PARK(ing) DAY 2019
Location: Cambridge, MA
Project Type: Interactive Public Installation
I See You is the second in our continuing explorations of public space as part of PARK(ing) Day. This year, we were very excited to collaborate with Meesh Zucker from Restart [Your City].
The two-part installation asks users to look at themselves in this strange context. A variety of plants and greenery create a small oasis on a busy street. A modular wooden frame positions a series of mirrors in a unique way, creating unfamiliar spatial conditions and relationships.
Adjacent to this sits StreetSpeak. A compact box with a screen, camera, and microphone, it asks users to help build a collective memory. They watch a stranger record a story, and then can respond with a story of their own. The two pieces work together to reframe the relationships between strangers in the street.
