Occupy LA, Oct 09 2011

On Oct 09, 2011, Soft Publics  conducted two experiments at Downtown City Hall/ Occupy Los Angeles. The experiments were about two questions regarding streetscape spaces :

1. How can traces be left for pedestrians to see and occupy?

2. How can a tool for self-documentation generate a conversation?

For the first question, a pair of sneakers were appropriated to hold large chalk pieces so that a person can leave lines of color or draw with color on the sidewalk. The second question was conducted from use of a project called Strange Cams in order to create machines that had multiple cameras.

The results can be found here and here.
