The gigantic installations get a lot of attention due to their sheer spectacular scale. But as I think back through the years, lots of small things have been my favorites. I was thinking it might be a good idea for people to talk about some of the small stuff that could reasonably be made by one or a few people. Especially considering some folks come back from their first time completely stunned and want to bring some massive, and probably impossible project, for the next year. Then, realizing the impossibility of their vision, they settle into a lethargic stupor and are eventually kidnapped, cooked and served as barbeque at some shady camp on playa.
One of my favorites I found one night in '06 or '07 -- it was called Dora's Boxen. It was shaped like a chest, but just big enough for one or two people to climb in through the side. Inside was a comfortable cushion to sit on, and some drawers filled with various art supplies and paper and blank stickers. People wrote messages on the inside.
Another favorite I found way out in deep playa late one night, maybe in '08 or '09. It was a couch facing a TV with a mirrored screen. On the TV was a blank book that was a TV Guide. A message on the book said that you were supposed to fill in the description for the show that you imagined was on at whatever time you found yourself there.
What are some of your favorites of small to eensy proportion?
