from 30 Proposals for a Picnic Area on a Hill for the Decordova Museum     1992

commissioned by The Decordova Museum, Lincoln, Massachusettes 1992
  • Installation at the LaJolla Museum of Contemporary Art 1992

I was asked by the DeCordova Museum to build a site specific sculpture .  Because they encouraged picnicking after their outdoor concert series I proposed that I would construct a picnic area.  I intentionally chose a hilly site, one not typically conducive to eating and sitting on.  I made 30 proposals, many of which explore the relationship between the requirement for a horizontal  table and the existing slope.
