a bench, a curb, & some shrubs: a show loosely about parks

“a bench, curb, and shrubs” is an interactive show loosely about parks. The kinetic sculptural works mimic the playful urges typically found in a park. Each work amplifies a subconsciously known signifier from the sculpture’s namesake and aims to make the participants aware of their involuntary reactions to the subtle design affordances. Through the use of wobbling platforms and materials considered industrial, the work emulates the sharing of a space on a bench, balancing on the edge of a curb, and the rustling of a group of shrubs, bringing these experiences together in a way that is generally impossible.
