Our project modifies sight with mirrors and connects people through abstract perspectives, specifically those with different heights. Our  project allows people to see the world from a different perspective,  like that of a baby or a dog, as well as another person shorter or  taller than oneself. We chose sight because we wanted to change people’s perspective. We will further connect people, and incite interactions that wouldn’t have taken place before. Our project will bring patrons of  Bonnet Springs Park, eye to eye despite any height differences they may have.

Our project also connects people with new vantage points on  the site. For instance, visitors can experience sculptures,  architecture or nature of the site from new perspectives afforded by our project - from afar, from above, from below, or in new ways like upside down or right to left. Unique modification possibilities by using lenses and other optical devices are endless.

Tactile Textures is an interactive sculpture generated by  unifying three-dimensional abstract geometric forms, such as cubes and  rectangular prisms. The surfaces of this intricate multi-faceted form  are carved out to create a traditional puzzle pattern. Within this  pattern, different surface textures are investigated. The straight  geometric edges of the overall form create an intriguing contrast with  the more organic shapes of the puzzle pattern. Not only the eyes are  invited to explore this intrigue, but also the hands.

Visitors are  invited to explore the sculpture through the modality of touch: by  discovering the grooves and exploring an organic path on the surface of  the sculpture, moving from one surface to the other, following lines  that continue into each other, experiencing different tactile textures.  Visitors with visual impairments can enjoy this experiential  composition, too, but the sculpture is aimed at a specific audience -  people with autism. For visitors of the Bonnet Springs Park with autism,  this sculpture can serve as a key node and a sensory device for when  they need sensory stimulation. While the debates around its  representation continues, the puzzle pattern emphasizes this link as it  has been the traditional symbol for autism. We highlight that unique  parts can come together to form a rich whole.

A Walk Around the Wall highlights different parts of becoming one, manifesting as an interactive and aesthetic sculpture. Both sides of the wall represent different individuals, groups and cultures living together in a global society, no matter which culture they belong to or which country they come from. Diversity in individuals are represented by diverse sensory experiences through the modality of touch.

On the top part of our project, a shell curtain suspends from an upper rail. Visitors can interact with the shell curtain and the sheels touch each other to produce natural sounds. On the inside of the bottom part, people can read quotes and words in braille. At the same time, quotes and words are written in different languages on the outside. The ribbon at the top appears to come from sky, while the bottom one dissolves into the ground. These formal movements aim to evoke thoughts about nature, humanism, human experience, diversity and unity.
