Warmbaby's "Wouldn't It Be Nice..." sketch, showing a person looking through a peephole into an imagined space.
From Warmbaby's proposal:
"Wouldn't it be nice...
.... if in Market Street somebody built....
a palace for everyone
a tropical paradise
a scene from a !lm
a space ship
a chocolate factory
a fun fair
an abstract piece
the inside of a bank vault
the surreal thoughts inside somebody’s head
whatever local people decide would be nice to have in this area.....
and let us peer into it...."
Warmbaby's peepboxes will be located on Market Street behind boarded up exteriors. Learn more about their project here.

From NODE's proposal:
"Mid-Market Memory Shop is a one-day-only interactive inside-out store in front of a vacant storefront on the south side of Market Street between 5th and 8th Streets where store patrons (community members and passerby) will exchange ideas of community instead of money. The Mid-Market Memory Shop is a private booth (reflecting a changing area) where participants can interact through video and sound, and a small filing cabinet housing the archive. Participants are invited to browse the archive for inspiration."

A video still from "9 Flights"
From Linda's proposal:
"My project, 9 Flights, is a video projection. It is representative of memory, empowerment, and community as seen through the projection of video interviews with past members about their experiences of the former mid-market YMCA."
