“Relaxing electronically” by Andrew

Andrew has turned a very old low capacity thumbdrive into a little person wearing a little hat and impish grin, reclining. This is to capture the impact of technology that is a huge part of the city’s culture and life right now, as well as its whimsy - its deep commitment to fun and creative events and oddity.

“Bedroom Window” by Jonathon

Two elements Jonathon sees every day from his apartment are The Castro rainbow flag - for inclusiveness and tolerance, and Sutro tower - a 3 sided radio tower very well visible in San Francisco often shrouded by fog. Fog has been termed by San Franciscans as Karl the Fog….

“Diversity” by Katherine.

The pride flag and the people represent the diversity of NYC & the flowers the beauty of the city. Katherine loves sitting outside on her stoop (stairs) watching the people go by.
