The Sidewalk's End is a project about experience. How can art be inextricably linked to the landscape to enhance the experience of the physical place? In an environment over-saturated with stimuli, what are the fundamental kinds of human experience that are lacking?
The landscape of The Empire Polo Fields is a flat, horizontal expanse of grass.
By disrupting this ground plane, the installation creates conditions of high and low, above and below, near and far, flat and sloped, all of which are conditions that could not be experienced here otherwise
A clean, grassy slope on which to lie down.
A tunnel to explore.
A look out twelve feet up in the air. A place to meet. A place to sit. This is the essence of The Sidewalk’s End.
