We have managed to make the wire tree go beyond a fine art work through elevating its practicability. The function of charging people’s phones encourages viewers’ participation. Kwastek explained that the viewers’ action is the key to performance projects. Likewise, even if viewers decide not to use the wire tree, their decision is also a reaction initiated by our installation piece which could be considered as another form of interaction. We improved the rough draft through coiling the base part onto the benches so that the tree becomes technically more stable and actively integrates into the environment. Unlike the base, the branches are vulnerable which is, in fact, an implication of nature’s current situation under the impact of technology. The bench is a good location for people could sit aside and do their stuff while their phone are being charged. Though it generally performs our intent, the wire tree could hold fewer phones than we expected because of its fragile structure.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
