Detroit is rich in cultural locations throughout the city. Our team selected 12 locations and used user engagement, voting, to narrow the locations to the final 4. From these 4 locations: African Bead Museum, 8 Mile Wall, Z-Lot, and D-Cut, one common theme emerged. The concept of engaging, and breaking social barriers throughout a community with artwork. User connections are lost by the digital world, "Be a Part of Our City" connects a community through the analog technology of polaroids and handwriting. This installation allowed community members to engage with others they did not know, forming new connections. Additionally, it caused participates to stop, think, and process what they would comment about the polaroid preceding them.
