Sculpture park score sculptures

During a residency with Tia Kramer at Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture park, we came up with a series of sculptures that helped people enact scores in the sculpture park. We also interviewed people who worked at the sculpture park and did a tour of park based on their stories, the score sculptures we had created and some of the sculptures in the museum’s permanent collection.

Contributors included Bobby and Joe who are in charge of landscaping and grounds keeping, Oscar who has an amazing bakery in the pavilion, and different security guards we interviewed. The final sculptures consisted of a tent to view the sky on a rainy day, weather balloons to aid in somatic awareness to the wind, and recreation of a score from artist Grace Hwang’s project “take comfort” embroidered on kids bean bag chairs and now part of the museum’s collection for the play area.
