Item Details
In Playground, Celeste Wilson covers BRIC’s planters with an assortment of vibrant colored shapes whose sense of fluid movement bridges two and three-dimensional spaces. Each shape is in fact created from an inflatable plastic ball, cut, flattened, and glued to the planters. Through such spontaneous gestures, Wilson transforms mundane, mass-manufactured objects into singular existences, finding creative potential in the unique malleability of plastic.
