Social Sculpture Conceptualization
The ambition for our project at Waterfront Park is threefold: to create a social sculpture that brings emotion into the public realm and frames memories; to celebrate the pleasure of meeting and learning from one another; and to find common ground in our diversity as we enjoy everything Alexandria’s waterfront has to offer.
We find inspiration in what we call the “theater” of everyday life. We love the unexpected encounters that street life and open-air public spaces have to offer. Familiar places have a poetic dimension that we try to capture and transform into surprising and memorable events through our art.
Alexandria is one of the most beautiful and open cities in America. Through all our work, we strive to help change the world one project at a time. This project will show the important role that artwork plays in enhancing a destination by bringing people together and highlighting their romance with Alexandria.
