Market Street Engagement Day

We posted the boards on the wall and stood way back, allowing a space for people to walk through, and then introducing the project for feedback. Turns out there are a lot of people hurrying down Market who really do want to stop and chat. We handed out “peepers..” our prototype viewing device (just a drawing tube) and asked people to look through and tell us what they saw. They looked at all the characters walking up and down market, at building details, the trees above, the sidewalk cracks below. And street art. Most of the passersby were more than happy to chat and interact, and said that it’s a welcome but unusual thing to happen.

Our takeaway: our piece needs to promote dialogue more; less of a personal experience more of an interaction. While our viewers present tales , stories and hidden views, perhaps there’s a way to collect some new ones while it’s open…

Some quotes from Friday:

Some of the thoughts offered:
“Nice to stop , talk and interact with people”
“Market is Street is MARKET STREET”
“Walking on Market is fraught with peril”
“Would like to highlight street art”
“Market is a path, not a destination”
“This area needs something!!”
“Does the city make those cracks in the bricks to water the plants?”
“The show must go on!”
“It’s difficult to find a place to stop on market”
“Would like more recreation on Market Street, not internet companies”
“Great to stop and learn about what really happens on market and in the TL”
“Everyone passes here eventually”
