This is a series of works that met my own standards on a qualified art installation in public space:
if people can have the impulse – feeling attached to the work.
I chose three different scenes to see if passerby will leave their marks in any kind.
Trace has a lot of forms.

I think is fun to create an art installation that is designed for people to interact.

This is a shopping area with a gallery, so people around here are expecting to see an artwork in this public place – but there hasn’t been anything new for a long time. I put soft clay on a picture frame, without pulling the isolation bets out, and a ‘welcome touch’ sign. It did attract people’s attention: kids, young teens, adults, parents, and grandparents.

(这附近有一个合法的雕塑 There is a legal sculpture nearby)
The kids do love it (not only kids).

I made a shelf by paper box to put bubble guns and a ‘play area’ sign to indicate it is welcome to play with. I personally believe the bubble they leave, the figure when they play with each other holding bubble guns, and the empty shelf are the marks they left here.
