Want to build the lounge viewing area for our Installation?

Postby vanillajeez » Mon Jan 17, 2011 4:40 pm

Hi
Would you be interesting in creating a lounge area that Black Rock citizens would kick back in to view the art installation we are creating?

We are creating something we are calling a Self Wall that will be an interactive installation where Black Rock citizens create their own self portraits - done from the instructions we provide. As portraits are done, you add your portrait to set places within the Wall.

It's definitely something that after a bike ride out to view this, you would want to sit back and relax while watching other people do their portraits and to also sit back and view the many interesting faces that make up the Self Wall.

Having some benches, couches, even a shade structure out here would really add to the enjoyment of this installation.

If interested I can provide more info about our installation - please email me sxsart@gmail.com

We are in Los Angeles, but you could be anywhere to create this super chilled out, comfortable Lounge area!

Cheers,
Carla

Getting someone else to set my shade up for me has been one of my ploys every year.

Good luck finding someone to do it for you!

Watch it, Sput! I'm not sure my post wasn't snark.

Hi
Having never built something or posted before - is good to know that it's not so easy to find others to build a chill out area. We haven't budgeted for this part of the installation, just thought it would be a good addition.
Maybe we should consider adding it in

Cheers

Plans for very cheap seating/furniture options. Basically, all you need to buy is sheets of plywood.

Their futon that you can raise up and down is great.

I'd suggest budgeting in a half dozen camp chairs and leave it at that. Cart them back to camp when you strike for the day.
