We want a mobile selfie booth that explores the potential of selfies to support a deeper urban conversation on Market Street.

Selected
About
The Mobile Selfie Booth is a mobile photo booth that can allow people to engage with Market Street through a virtual landscape sharing stories, ideas, comments, and experiences on/of/about Market Street. Market St. is currently a place where people take selfies all day, every day. How can we use this social media practice to engage audience in a larger social conversation about urban planning, community engagement, commerce, education, politics, civic duties, cultural and artistic movements going on. There is potential to show the true diversity of Market Street but also give the people open forum to discuss public matters.

Outreach
The Mobile Selfie Booth is a mobile photo booth that gives people the opportunity to engage with Market Street through a virtual landscape. The booth allows the people to share stories, ideas, comments, and experiences on/of/about Market Street through any social media platform. 

Market St. is currently a place where people take selfies all day, every day. Anyone walking Market has a very hard opinion on Market Street. How can we use this social media practice to engage audiences in a larger social conversation? How can we spark conversations about urban planning, community engagement, commerce, education, politics, civic duties, cultural and artistic movements in an open discourse? The Mobile Selfie Booth can pop up anywhere. It can curate any conversation. It can input, store, and archive infinite ideas from the people about Market Street. Through the virtual landscape it can allow anyone from government, commerce, social services, or residential communities to understand the changes and the needs and wants of the people interacting with Market Street. 

There is potential to show the true diversity of Market Street but also give the people open forum to discuss public matters. This is more than a suggestion box. This a virtual open forum where we share entertainment, future ideas, politics, innovations, social needs, etc. The Mobile Selfie Booth can adapt to the communities needs while being a lens for the community to view itself.

Market Street Prototyping Festival

Here's an in depth analysis of the 2015 festival from Gehl Studio San Francisco. "Makers on Market" summarizes key findings and insights from the Festival, identifies prototypes with potential of influencing the design of Market Street, and outlines a framework for using prototyping events as a way to engage members of the public in finding solutions to public challenges.

Market Street Prototyping Festival — The Neighborland

Tens of thousands of people travel down Market Street in San Francisco every day. Most of us simply mind our own busines…

Market Street Prototyping Festival
Thursday, April 9, 2015, 9:00am
Market Street between Embarcedero and Van Ness

An open call for creative ways to improve Market Street yielded hundreds of submissions from citizens and organizations. Fifty of these submissions were chosen to create rough models, or “prototypes”, that demonstrate how their idea would work. From April 9th - 11th, Market Street will come alive with these ideas. Its wide sidewalks will be filled with temporary installations ranging from performances spaces, relaxation zones, dynamic art pieces, and more.

Come and walk the festival route, check out the installations, and tell us what you think. A selection of these designs will then move from prototype to reality, as part of our city’s Better Market Street initiative.

@Joseph Thomas The Mobile Selfie Booth uses the selfie to engage the people in a deeper conversation about community, politics, civics, environment, gentrification, urban planning, entertainment, etc. #nojudgements The selfie booth uses an everyday action that is found on Market St. to grab the pedestrian's attention while offering opportunities to engage in the community.

Playtime is over, kiddies! And I expect you to be equally blunt about my ideas! Nothing personal, but if this contest was about originality and creativity, "selfies" aren't either.
Who are "the people" and "the community" you refer too? And what makes anyone think there is not enough civic engagement on Market Street, or that it needs to be “improved?” The Cable Car turntable on Powell is the Exact Center Of The World. If you stand there for 15 minutes, a person from every part of the planet will walk past you. They might even “engage” you for directions. Saints and sinners, losers and winners, janitors and celebrities, models and the modest, techies and untouchables, Tourons and Residents, nuns and sex-workers, Fijians and Siberians, immigrants and refugees both foreign and domestic, singles and families, the halt, the lame, the blind; representatives of the entire spectrum of humanity are there every day of the year, and engagement happens every minute of every hour.
Market Street from Van Ness to the Embarcadero is nothing if not “vibrant.” It may not resemble some developers plans or yupsters pretensions, but Market Street is engaged. There are many problems with the current design of and future plans for Market Street; "civic engagement" is not one of them.
