steve newberry art: pond (for the urban dweller)

bristol board, plastic thumb tacks, vinyl + straw + foam placemats, vinyl venetian blinds, ABS pipes, plywood

With pond, my primary purpose was to create an area of “natural” reprieve for the urban dweller. I consider the piece a sociological experiment that aims to see to what extent, if any, the viewer can create a connection (real or perceived) between an artificial representation of an ecosystem and the natural one that it imitates.
