By Any Media Necessary (BAMN) Squad

I want to stimulate the branding & embracement of my city’s identity by highlighting everyday hero accomplishments, celebrating innovation, & bridging diverse communities to stimulate small businesses while raising morale in San Jose neighborhoods. Living in the digital age, any artist or organization can upload their work online however what I want to do is create public digital new media art & strategically display it in busy streets & neighborhoods for a direct human interaction, presence, & connection.
