Ring in the start of summer at the official June 21* debut of “Circle Shade - 2πr4”, the winning installation of the 2017 Folly Function competition. Designed by Eva Jensen Design, the installation is a “constellation” of tripods topped by playful circular canopies that were inspired by “dancing discs, spinning shadows, and captures cloud follies connecting ground with sky,” Eva Jensen describes.
Free to all, the opening evening event will comprise art-making workshops and outdoor activities and performances.
Get a glimpse of the installation below.
“Circle Shade - 2πR4 is a kit of seven parts that can be easily assembled to create a shading structure that incorporates outdoor furniture. It consists of a unique combination of three main components – a circular canopy, tripod support poles attaching to cylindrical drum counterweights.”
“These tilting canopies exude a playful character that complements the spirit of the Park. Circle Shade - 2πR4 offers an unobstructed view of the Park and its vistas, and may be arranged in compelling clusters that provide broader coverage from the elements. Its cylindrical counterweights may be used as additional seating, display surfaces, or step stools during set up.”
