Food Sessions at Citi Summer Streets

by Pierre

As part of the 10th anniversary of Summer Streets, NYC DOT Art has commissioned Daily tous les jours and Nico Fonseca to reproduce Food Sessions, over three Saturdays.

Here, food becomes more than taste, the guided meditation on food is a shared journey focusing on the culture, memories, body and identity. Together, participants explore ways to eat with all their senses, opening up their imagination, while calling upon their memories, and sharing their culture. In the buzz of downtown New York, we were excited to gather even larger and diverse crowds.

Musical Swings Impact Study

by Fady

As many of you may know, Daily tous les jours embarked on an adventure over the last year, touring their creation, Musical Swings: an exercise in collaboration, around the United States. This insightful journey shone a light onto many aspects of design for interaction and public spaces. As part of this adventure, we commissioned a short documentary and an impact study which we’re excited to release today.

The independent study looked at the way the Musical Swings impacted the downtowns of West Palm Beach, Detroit and San Jose, where they were temporarily installed in 2016. Supported by the Knight Foundation and conducted by Joshua Bloom and Surale Phillips of the Clue Group, this study aims to understand and assess the social and economic impacts of art initiatives and how they reinvigorate public spaces. It sets the ground for a forward-looking conversation between policy makers and designers on the value of such projects in cities and how to approach public spaces in the future – proving that the effort is more than worthwhile.

Directed by Robbie Hart and Kara Blake, the 14-minute documentary follows the Swings around the United States and tells the stories of people and places they touched along the way.

Through these two different means, we hope to equally inspire artists, elected officials, developers and the public to reexamine how they look at their cities and work together to appreciate them as magical, vibrant spaces that can be shared by everyone.

If you are tempted to dive deeper into our research, more detailed reports on each individual cities are available, please get in touch if you’d like a copy.

As we continue to tour the travelling kit in 2018, we’re actively working on a permanent version of the Musical Swings, due to be out late 2018. If you’re interested in an acquisition, please drop us a line.
