Putt & Peal, 2017

Bells are an essential part of the New York City soundscape. Their sonorous presence atop church spires both disrupts and regulates our days, reminding us to take pause and reflect. We make reference to these bells by proposing a landscape of 65 hand-made ceramic bells that will be mounted on a soft and vibrant topographic landscape. Minigolfers will putt their golf balls across a landscape of undulating colors and clusters of ceramic flora that will chime when bounced against, producing an impromptu music for Governor’s Island.
