DRESSING, astro turf on steel frames with oilcloth cushions, mirrors, concrete, artificial flowers and sod, size to be determined

My project will enhance a sense of place within the green space and pedestrian paths of a public location. The constructed landscape allows for a playful interpretation of the physical environment while serving as a point of connection, affording pedestrians the opportunity to both sit and enjoy conversation and the view beyond, the view outward into their community- providing a contemplative place from which to take in the view, conversation or simply a pause in one’s day. The urn forms that make up Belvedere and Dressing reference the body as container; as such they are both familiar and inviting.
