Overview

Temporary exterior installation for a music festival. Piece was 4'x8' on extra dense styrofoam painted with several types of paint to mimic metal.

Goals

The placement of the piece above the water and at the end/perimeter of the festival was meant to signify the expanse beyond the limits of the festival's experience. The piece was ultimately intended to elicit thoughts and discussion about the nature of reality.

Process

This project was managed directly between the festival art director and the artist. The artist was given much latitude to design based on their own vision.
