Stainless steel, hand-spun hang drums are attached to powder coated steel seats. The bright colors are a contrast to sidewalks and green spaces. There is a design possibility for stainless steel seats/posts.
The design makes use of a pedestrian view. This adaptive installation lends itself to sidewalk surface or concrete pad. A display of 5 drums in a row is approximately 90" x 32" x 32". This can vary.
We are currently working with a lighting engineer to design and create an interactive light element. This would be a great project and a perfect space to see that through.
We are interested in creating simple moments of joy. Our work is intended to engage children of all ages. The intent of “Hanging” is to give the community a place to meet, rest, and play. There are no prerequisites for interacting. It is an opportunity for self expression. It gives the user a chance to connect with others, meet a friend or sit and contemplate. The sculpture calls to be examined and inspires all sorts of playful possibilities. Our goal in presenting this work is to encourage creativity and foster pride and goodwill.
We are a two artist team. We both bring our unique skills but this is an equal partnership and a total collaboration from design to fabrication. We have successfully worked with city managers, engineers, project managers and landscape designers to complete projects on time and under budget.
The interactive element is as much a part of the design as the sculpture is itself. Rubber tipped aluminium drumsticks have been added to the design to enhance the interactive experience. We haven't gotten tired of watching kids of all ages sit and play,

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
