Ostrich Favorite 



Jul 27 2013

This interactive, site-specific project is a comment on how we - constantly attached to mobile devices - neglect to observe the environment around us. Like ostriches, we willingly trap our heads, minds, and imagination in a fantasy world that is detached from reality.

Three colorful fabric tunnels span a man-made grove of Elm trees in downtown Boston, defining an intimate courtyard where nature clashes with cartoonish representation.

The tunnels act like blinders to the trees in the park. They are thus painted on the outside with comic, larger-than-life scale Elm leaves - the leaves of the trees one cannot see.

So as to activate the experience, make it both more fun and more artificial, the tunnels are asymmetrical: of varying heights, colors and starting points.
