“a bench, curb, and shrubs” is an interactive show loosely about parks. This show features kinetic sculptural works that mimic playful urges, interactions and motions found in a park. Each work amplifies a subconsciously known signifier from the sculpture’s namesake (a bench, a curb, and shrubs) and aims to make the participant aware of the involuntary reactions to the subtle design affordances as they walk through the gallery space. Through the use of wobbling platforms, the works will try to emulate the sharing of a space on a bench, balancing on the edge of a curb, and the rustling of a group of shrubs. “a bench, curb, and shrubs” brings three experiences often impossible to occur simultaneously, together.
