Interactive Installation Model (Public Art)
This is a public art proposal project about a playground. This playground is combined with an upper area and a lower area. The upper area is a playground that has some gym facilities for elderly to keep fit and slides for children to play. On the other hand, the lower area just has a few benches, chess tables and a strange withered tree. So people may have no interest to walk up stairs to enjoy or even discover those facilities at the upper area.
This public art proposal consists of 2 parts. First of all, a shadow of the withered tree, which the direction of sunrise, drawn on the ground. In that shadow, a branch from that tree broken that needs people to stand there to repair that shadow. Second, the shadow of the tree is growing up to the stairs and there are appeared flower when people walk upwards, the upper, the more flowers can see. And hope this public art project can guide the people to the upper part of the playground and enjoy the facilities there.
