Project 02: Dare, dare

For the second project for this term, our prof is daring us to produce a sculpture that confronts, challenges, or upsets the usual. I initially wanted to make a piece about the notion of time passing. But then the idea turned into creating a situation where the viewer has to accomplish something or some sort of task. I thought that the best way to prompt a viewer to do a task, is to make it some form of play. So then the focus of the piece became the idea of "play" as an adult. The idea is still kind of rough, but here's a sketch:
Might be too Big Brother to get anyone to interact, but even if they don't, I think it's a good commentary on how playing as an adult is either "on the clock" or a "waste of time".
