"This piece was inspired by bird watching walls in the woods and children’s playgrounds. From bird watching walls along certain hiking trails, you are able to observe the birds at a distance that doesn’t disrupt them. It feels similar to how children invent games for themselves, peeking through to find one another on the other side or finding a distant viewpoint that allows them to cheer on their friend. Both function as a welcoming landscape where you can decide how you interact."
