GIANT PURPLE PRICKLY PEAR
Imperial Valley Desert Museum
Design - Build ​​​​​​​
The project plays with our existing notions of perspective, asking visitors to forfeit their know frame-of-reference and to question how they relate to the art, and subsequently the greater world, relative to their own scaled perspective; both physically and throughout time. In the desert — a seemingly infinite expanse of sand, with little vegetation or infrastructure to provide context of size — scale starts to disappear. Here, the artwork exists independently of external influences as an nebulous mirage on the landscape. As visitors approach the structure they are presented with an alternate vision of reality; as if they were tiny persons moving throughout a normal sized cactus garden.
