COMPANIONS, swings | 2021-2022
found wood | flocking | resin | found plastics | other various materials
As these sculptural friends started to accumulate and interact with the furniture, architectural built-ins, and everyday objects in my home-studio, I found myself yielding my space to what began to feel like a ‘Companion playground’. In this installation, the imaginary playground leaves the studio, and the line between sculpture and play equipment blurs, both creating and becoming the setting for their Play Date. Companions sit on swings, become their own swings, play on seesaws and slides, and interact with the existing gallery façade, taking over yet another space with their childlike antics.
