The project i chose also happened to also be the first. After looking through the rest of the catalog i kept wanting to come back the the Homeless Vehicle project by Krzysztof Wodiczko. His project was to create an instrument for survival for the homeless community. The vehicle looks like a modified shopping cart with some features a homeless person would use. There are bottle and can collectors as well a a slide out cover to protect them from the elements. The cart/ vehicle to me looks a lot better than an old shopping cart packed full of random things, this cart looks a little less rough on the eyes. I think this project could be considered interventionist because Krzysztof Wodiczko was attempting to not only to help the homeless and meet their needs but to raise attention to this issue. He wanted to change the situation by creating this vehicle for homeless people, people would notice the issue more i think if homeless people were pushing this carts around. This idea i think could be successful because i think of homeless people of finding things on the street and using them and modifying them to survive on the streets, using this for another purpose other than what it was created for. Having homeless people pushing around a survival cart which is made solely for the homeless to survive with would catch the eye of anyone walking down the street.
