Sticks and Stones Walk

Home Eleven Vote Code: 65780

In our current social media climate words have a profound effect. Our intent is to make an interactive sculpture where visitors can enter and experience duality as either the aggressor or the receiver. We envision a wood structure comprised of stacked cedar wood and bricks with two halls divided by a wall of tubes. Each path is limited to only two feet wide. As they walk in, they can choose to remain within their space or push the tubes to gain more, however, as they push their tubes in, this same tube extends outward to the visitor on the other path. Giving both visitors an immediate reaction. Midway visitors will encounter a one foot opening in the middle of the structure, where both sides can see each other. Now as they continue down the hall, they once again choose how they want to interact with the movable tubes. We hope this interaction can provide a platform for visitors to discuss how a simple action can have an adverse effect to another person.
