installation: Shopping cart chair

This project transformed a typical metal rod shopping cart, found far from its shopping mall, into a lounge chair.
Inspired by how such objects out of context take on new appeal, this lost cart was reconstructed to fit into it’s new environment. The chair was placed amongst the trees over looking 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.
