tree house



this tree house has a rope ladder with broken rungs. the hole in the box is there to draw curiosity. the broken rungs are there to make it unattainable. the head of health and safety viewed my work on campus as safety hazards and kept having campus grounds crew take them down. so on this one, i broke the rungs to prevent anyone from climbing and possibly hurting themselves. as a result it helped to fuel future works that utilize unattainability and desire as a main element. this was also the first piece that had a very recognizable cultural symbol, the tree house. this helped conjure images of peoples' childhood memories.
