[ NOVEMBER 2 ]
ELABORATION: quotes from studio interview
Depending on what time of the day you get there, you're basically
going to be seeing either me constructing it, or see a fully built
fort, made out of locally found wood. It'll just be me building it, but if people want to help, they can.
You could either explore it, take it as a sculpture, a piece of art that you can't touch-- hopefully you won't-- but you're free to roam through it. A fort. A multilevel fort/treehouse scenario.
[ about images inside ] I thought about it, I'm not entirely
sure what that would be if there is any. There is a sense of
personalizing it once you make it, you know, a clubhouse scenario. Maybe
when you're younger and exploring sexual identity you got some porno
magazines and whatever, some video games in there, I'm not really
sure. There's a lot of things you could pick, so, we'll see. There will be some sort of setting for people to take a seat in there, talk in there, hopefully people will take advantage of that.
I want there to be a spot where you can peer over the wall and you can see
the rest of the fair from above, like in a treehouse seeing enemies
and things coming your way.
This comes from the same place that you would build a treehouse as a
child, which for me is making something that is your own, apart from
all these things that you're told to do, the rules that your parents
have for you at the time.
Making a place that's your own is to me in a funny way reflecting my position as an artist right now. Kind of just, building something for myself that ultimately other people can enjoy.
