installation: Shopping cart chair

This project transformed a typical metal rod shopping cart, found far from its shopping mall, into a lounge chair and fence like structure.

Inspired by how such objects out of context take on new appeal, this abandoned cart was reconstructed to fit into it’s new environment. The chair was placed among the trees overlooking a small ravine and river where it was found. The branches from adjacent trees were woven through the metal grid. The transformation also recalls childhood memories of sitting in these carts. Instead of being a garbage in the forest, the object It becomes a resting spot, turning it’s back to the city to be place to sit looking towards nature.
