A proposal for Grand Concourse Beyond 100 open ideas competition (sponsored by the Bronx Museumand the Design Trust for Public Space), this project received 3rd prize, and was on display at the Bronx Museum of the Arts with the other 6 finalists.Live Wired is an audio-visual nervous system for the Grand Concourse, using nodes to weave the long, thin boulevard into a tight-knit web of interaction, re-organizing the programs on the concourse into closer proximity to one another.The nodes used in this web are varied, but all use surface ornamentation to reach a deeper understanding and connection for everyone who interacts with them. The inspiration for these systems comes from the decorative expression created by graffiti artists - tagging high-traffic, under-utilized spaces to make them into environments for personal expression. The MTA Skyway, Bodega Broadcast Network, MTA m.i.c., Yankee Game-View Mirror, and the Concourse Connection website all work to facilitate specific avenues of communication. All of these comprise an overall schema for the concourse: a person-to-person infrastructure that also applies to the relationship between the Concourse and the rest of the world. The emphasis is on residents and their use of these systems to reach out to each other, cultivating chance interactions between individuals who might otherwise never meet.
