The Portable Activist Booth

Conducted as a research project for the Korean Northgate (KONO) neighborhood of Oakland, CA, Tay was given the task to target artists that reside around the area to gather opinions on how to further establish the vibrancy Art Murmur and First Fridays bring into the KONO district once a month. Tay designed the Portable Activist booth- a wearable, toll booth. As a performance at Art Murmur, the Activist Booth attracted and gathered 76 interviews from neighboring and vending artists asking questions to further help the KONO District develope strategies to develop the neighborhood in the local interest.
