Description

New View is a public art installation that consists of a set of 8 wooden swings suspended in trees, intentionally placed too high for use as swings. The original New View took place in December of 2018, in trees belonging to my neighbors in the East Deering neighborhood of Portland, Maine. New View 2 has been approved by the City of Portland Public Art Committee and will be installed for six weeks in Deering Oaks Park between April 5 and May 19.

Artist Statement:

New View is an outdoor installation that consists of a set of eight wooden swings suspended in trees, too high for ordinary use as swings. The original New View took place in December of 2018, in the East Deering neighborhood of Portland, Maine. New View 2 was installed in Portland’s Deering Oaks Park on April 6 as part of the City of Portland Temporary Public Art Program. It will be on view until May 19, 2019.

New View arose from my experience of contending with cancer in 2017. It is an expression of my sense that life is both tremendously joyful and exquisitely precarious.
