The Mobile Arts Platform is pleased to announce the MAP “Mobile AII (Art and Ideas Incubator)” was selected for the Palo Alto Public Art Master Plan — Artist-led Outreach Project Grant.
For this project MAP artists Peter Foucault and Chris Treggiari will custom build two bicycle trailers that will be pulled behind two battery powered, motorized bicycles that arrive on-site and connect to form a mobile art making and idea generating space. This project will be installed at multiple locations throughout the City of Palo Alto from September- October to directly engage Palo Alto’s intrinsically creative and diverse population through a mobile platform that can be easily deployed and set up in a variety of urban circumstances.
Palo Alto is the unprecedented epicenter of the current revolution in technology and communications. Many of the most successful products and companies today started off as an innovative idea hatched in the living rooms and garages of Silicon Valley. Collaborations have always been an integral part of the big picture matching people with skill sets that can move forward the dream into reality. On the flip side of this picture for every successful idea launched there are numerous failures that fall by the roadside. Through this project we would like to give a chance for everyone’s ideas to be conceptually validated! Mimicking this grass roots to big ideas formula, MAP will design a creative space where people can freely exchange ideas and concepts that they feel will help their fellow mankind. We will be asking people “Whats the Big Idea?”
