peepSHOW

22 neighbors want a peepSHOW on Market Street.

Selected
peepSHOW is a viewing stations that focuses the gaze and thoughts of a passersby onto curated obscure or concealed scenes on Market Street. These framed viewpoints are accompanied by an audio or visual story—a purposely hyperbolic tale, urban myth or altered image, for example—that creates a moment for the user to contemplate his or her surroundings and acts to spur discussion and create shared experience.

peepSHOW builds on the notion of a nature-lover’s viewing station or scenic platform (birdwatching, viewpoints) but centers this in an active, dense city context, allowing for the contemplation of the urban environment. Urban spaces are made rich by their myriad components, but this very complexity can overwhelm. By filtering out all but one aspect or moment in the cityscape, a clear piece can emerge from the blur, exposing the often overlooked vibrancy that is Market Street.

Want to create your own peepSHOW? Here's a how to guide on Instructables.

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.
