In the context of urban spaces, we are exploring the perceptions and realities of people as they move through the city scape. This project will focus on alleys and parking lots – during daylight, and during nighttime, and how the perceptions change over just a few hours.
Risk is a shifting concept, and what may make one person feel unsafe may represent a haven for another.
This project is data driven, digitally responsive, in part controlled by outside forces, with people’s bodies and lives all hung in the balance of an alley.
Also important in this process has been community collaboration. Pins and Needles as a collective cannot build a universal experience of alleys, but through working with the community, a collective experience beyond the sum of the parts of Pins and Needles will be presented in this experiment.
We would like to thank the OAC for its generous support of this project.
