This modest installation plays on one of Jane Jacob’s three characteristics of successful neighborhoods, notably the need for ‘Eyes on the Street’. A playful take on Jacob’s tenet for safe and engaged communities, this installation activates and calls for interaction with the public. By day the installation serves as an engaging matrix supporting stylish eyewear, while in the evening the once static form comes to life with sunset. In the evening, the matrix’s array of lights illuminates behind the eyewear in response to the activity on the street and sidewalk outside the storefront.
