"As the SF Board of Supervisors prepares to vote on a law that would make it illegal to sit or lie on any sidewalk in the city, San Franciscans from all walks of life will respond by participating in a creative celebration of the city’s public space, culture, and tradition of compassion.
On Saturday, March 27, people in every neighborhood will be doing what they love on the city’s sidewalks and they will be inviting family, friends, and neighbors to join them."
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
