DIY PAINTING, Balancing Act (2015-) is a series of interactive installations that encourage viewers (users) to touch, feel, drape, & hang the elements to manipulate spaces around them. The sculpture itself functions as a moving painting, forever in flux.
Balancing Act, Act 5 introduces a fun take on the familiar form of a monkey bar and combines that with the base of a rocking chair to create a playful hybrid reminiscent of childhood that beckons to be interacted with.
Digital images of this installation have been acquired by the SAIC Widen Collection
