The Sidewalk’s End

Inspired by Shel Silverstein’s Poem “Where The Sidewalk Ends,” this piece was commissioned for the Coachella 2013 Music & Arts Festival. A sidewalk rising in a gentle meandering curve, peeled away from the earth to reveal the mysterious underbelly of infrastructure as it climbs into the air. A pathway lined with benches and lamp-posts passes beneath the surface of the sidewalk creating a moment of wonder, where things are not what one would expect. A shady, cool spot by day and magical surprising place by night, the sidewalk provides an experience of imagination and memory, a gathering space for community with interesting vistas of its surroundings along the way. With benches, and thick turf the sculpture provides places to sit and reflect. The sculpture also features a variety of interactive features including misting units, custom steel kaleidoscopes and interactive lighting controlled by pressure sensors beneath the concrete and artificial turf.
