This pavilion was designed for a Land Art Biennale in Fort Collins, Colorado. We are manifesting the larger context in a more immediate relationship to the individual. It includes a personal journey into, around, through, and out of the pavilion to reveal an awareness of the scope and elasticity of context. This continuous conversation has no final sense of arrival or end destination, creating an understanding of the interconnectedness of the site, pavilion, art, and time.
Opposites exist on a spectrum and are not separate or mutually exclusive. Perceptions of above and below, immediate and expanse, in and out, human-made intervention and “natural” occurrences are questioned. The elasticity of context is demonstrated through narrative movement by carving.
