The goal of the installation was to create a sense of PLACE by altering existing PATTERNS of people-movement subtly by addition of elements foreign to the landscape. The additions would make people take notice and appreciate the daily-used surroundings and path.
We were given a material called the 'Home Slicker', which was a yellow mesh-like material to be used by all the teams. We used different techniques - draping, twisting, wrapping to guide the eye as one walked down the path, to the final destination - a clearing in the woods where bright colored furniture pieces invited one to take a moment to enjoy the landscape.
