Food for Thought

Food For Thought was a public intervention for Critical Practices. My group wanted to humanize and intervene on behalf of Berkeley’s large homeless population. In an effort for student participation on campus we designed and installed a collection box in Dwinnelle Plaza, a highly trafficked part of campus where both student’s and non students frequent. The box was designed to be easily and cheaply made and can be easily installed anywhere. Lasercut files are online.

On this project I worked on ideation and performed observations of how Dwinelle Plaza was activated. When I saw the mix of students and the homeless I knew that I wanted to do something for them. I designed the laser cutter files, and constructed the box.
