WINDOW STORIES

Window Stories

What and Where

Window Stories is a public art project created and partly funded by URBAN INTERVENTIONS to enhance the public space along E Street in San Diego’s East Village (downtown San Diego). It transformed a large wall of the Salvation Army retail store, that was frequently tagged, to tell four unique stories through 3-dimensional “windows” with light and motion-activated sound. While designed as impermanent, the 4 light boxes have been up since May 2018. Tagging has essentially stopped, and the nearby area transformed. The installation has been embraced by the local community, including area homeless.
