Neighborhood Window

I have learned to make pretzels and cinnamon rolls among other things between March 8 and June 8th when the State of Michigan had issued stay at home orders. We could not eat them al (but we often did.) This proposed window insertion—essentially a telescoping box encourages social connection while keeping physical distance and provides an outlet for neighborhood sociability. Can be paired with an icon-based signal and map (physical as well as virtual) to let folks know what is on offer.

Street Canoe

One in a series of DIY hybrid vehicles, the Street Canoe responds to seasonal and climate variations that turn sidewalks into lakes or streets into sheets of ice. Imagining multi-functional mobility devices turns our existing bikes, boats, skateboards, and most anything else into material for working through creative challenges.
