Mobile Messaging

San Jose, CA


Mobile Messaging, an interactive community bulletin board towed by tandem bike, was part of San Jose's ZERO1 Biennial. The board travels to public community spaces: transit hubs, plazas, parks and sidewalks. As a tribute to urban activist Jane Jacobs, Mobile Messaging invites community members write about local heroes, neighborhood history, and regional secrets to foster a sense of place. Uniforms and the billboard are made from re-used materials.
