A place to play, a place to draw, a place to dream. My installation–Cloud Towers– seeks to create a space for gathering and creativity in the gallery.
The installation consists of a tiered table and towers shaped like clouds. They serve as a hub for creative activities. The stamps can be used to draw with, to create the weather emanating from the clouds. Participants create stamp drawings and display them right on the tables and shelves. The shelves also include many examples of my marble toys, to be played with. The point of the piece is that it requires participation on the part of the viewer to activate it. I’ve created an artwork, but equally importantly, I’ve created a place to gather and a platform for the creativity of others.
