This site-specific, temporary public art installation of two larger-than-life stickpeople takes the virtual “everyman” characters from my previous work in the Society of Stickpeople series into the real world.
Occupying the space between whimsy and foreboding, these abstract human forms, made from raw recycled cardboard, do not embody a particular gender, age, or other demographic. Thus, viewers are left to create their own story for the stickpeople as they view the work, which rose overnight and quickly degraded due to its exposure to the elements.
