About coming home
coming home is a citywide pilot project that seeks to build a bridge of shared humanity between neighbors - housed and unhoused.
Created by contemporary artist John Craig Freeman, sound artists Tania Ketenjian & Philip Wood (Sound Made Public), and produced by Lava Mae and ZERO1, coming home is an immersive augmented reality + audio experience connecting San Franciscans across the housing divide.
Most of us know little about our unhoused neighbors - those we see and the many more who are invisible - their stories or what's required to navigate these challenging circumstances.
Come immerse yourself in life-size augmented reality scenes from across San Francisco neighborhoods, temporarily installed at Proxy SF.
You'll meet a full range of people and hear their stories - from life on the street to holding a job, as a student or an elder, and from the point of view of those who have successfully moved beyond what is, for most, a temporary situation. And experience how we are more alike than we are different.
