Group Hug

Made Arrangement

For ArtPrize, Made Arrangement would like to create an outdoor sculpture that creates a temporary community gathering space where we can reflect, meditate, be together, have conversations with friends or strangers, hug each other, laugh together, and enjoy each other's company. Inspired by a series of drawings done each day during lockdown-- we dreamt about being amongst people again, and sometimes that day we just needed a hug. We want our sculpture to feel like visitors are wrapped in a big, colorful hug. We aim to feel a sense of connection to those around us, our environment and the universe, with a felt sense of harmony and well being. The dimensions of this sculpture are a play on the 6 foot social distancing number we have adapted to and live within. This structure will be made with textile and wood.
