As gentrification is a rather grave topic for an installation that aims to create joy, visualizing the map data in a way that doesn’t resemble a map seemed important to me. As the users are able to understand the scale of impact through a rather abstract display, they would be able to approach the issue without the heavy emotions that come with it. The simplicity of the interactions allows users to understand their own individual impact of gentrification without obstructing their life. The bridge serves to ease a grave topic in an indirect yet powerful way.
I’m not exactly sure how much everything would cost, but here is a very general approximation:
LED glass display : $600
LED beam lights: $10000
Motion sensors: $1000
