Sticks and Strings consists of a collection of organically structured frames that support balancing hammocks. Stability of the hammocks relies on vulnerability, openness, and social coordination through the engagement of multiple users to achieve the goal of balance. When the installation is fully engaged, the hammocks equalize and provide a comfortable support system for the users to enjoy. Sticks and Strings is a public installation which examines the notion of trust within communities and between individuals by offering a moment of physical dialogue between friends and strangers that requires risk, negotiation, and acceptance. Sticks and Strings provides visitors moments of play, relaxation, and engagement while sponsoring small bonds of trust by encouraging individuals to achieve physical balance through social cooperation.
