Discordian Design


Temporary exterior installation for a music festival. All pieces were 4'x8' on wood painted with several types of paint to mimic metal. The placement of the pieces were made to maximize the use of the sun to cast a shadow.


The piece was intended to elicit thoughts and discussion about the nature of reality.


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.
