CHAIR COLLAGEConverging Realities is a site specific installation, conceived and made to blend with and fit within this site. At times it’s hard to separate the work from the surrounding mangrove swamp, and many people miss parts of the installation. Some people just walk on by looking for ‘the art’. This was my intention: To make a work that belonged in the site.

The upright sticks on the chairs mirror the upright reeds and mangrove shoots in the inlet. The organic shapes of the chairs blend with the surrounding trees and undergrowth. They are made from wood that matches the colours and textures in the surrounds. All this makes it hard to photograph ‘the art’ as distinct from the inlet. It changes in different lights and with the constantly changing weather.
