Our collaborative project examines San Francisco's SOMA district, which suffers from a massive gap in wealth. This inequality causes division within the community. Therefore, our project focuses on breaking down psychological boundaries between the rich and poor communities. Through facilitating the telling of stories from the homeless community in SOMA, we want to help generate empathy for this community.
A story is not just about words, but also about images. We combine words and images into a series of physical sculptures. These sculptures are in the shape of polyhedrons so that people can interact with them. The individual faces of the polyhedron have visuals and quotes relating to their stories.
