City Reader; issue one is a publication for the pedestrian. An intervention heightening an awareness of overlooked networks within our built environment. The first issue intends to re-present the sidewalk to the public realm, merging city prescription and conversation while investigating the importance of the pedestrian. The printed dialogues will be free to the public, and will be distributed within one day on sidewalks of San Francisco.
Reading Conventions is seeking funds to cover the printing costs of their first publication. $1000 equals 1000 copies. The value of the City Reader will allow for a neighborhood awareness to extend into the urban context, with hopes for new perspectives formed between pedestrian and city.
Twelve artists and writers have been invited to contribute work to be featured in this public pamphlet. Works include altered observations, short essays, dimensions, visual thoughts on perceptions of the street, city mappings, facade studies, conversations, photographs, stories, data, questions, portraits, etc.
