Yilan International Children’s Folklore
And Folkgame Festival: Public Art Installation
SKYE was invited to the 2015 Yilan International children’s folklore and folkgame festival by the Yilan culture affairs bureau to design a public art installation, with the theme of: “meet the outdoor playful chair”. The proposal was to merge the concept of lounging in a chair within the context of the landscape by creating an outdoor hammock enclosed by a grove of ornamental grass- an individual secret garden within the park.
Underneath the seating hammock, a variety of fragrant herbs was planted to attract visitors and to help provide a calm sensory experience as users lazily lounge on the hammock looking up at the sky and passing clouds.
