Project Notes

My goal in this project was to create a public art installation that could foster communication among culturally and economically diverse groups of people in the neighborhood that area usually isolated from each other—a platform for people who don't normally have the opportunity to express their opinions.

I created a small temporary park that allowed people who otherwise might not have contact with each other to engage in dialogue or respond, in writing, to issues concerning "division."
