Easing the Street

Studio Description

Rosa Weinberg

In Easing the Street we asked students to take a look at the 24 hour cycle an individual traverses as they spend the night at the Pine Street Inn in Boston and are subsequently out on the street during the day. We challenged students to design and fabricate devices and clothing that would serve one purpose inside the shelter, and another on the street. The students took on a huge range of topics, from the psychological impact of shelter life to the stigma attached to being homeless.
