Jangling Stumps

     Jangling Stumps is an interactive installation. The installation was a result of working with and attempting to bridge the themes of sponteneity, humor, happiness, sound, and ideals of communitas. A collection of treestumps were transformed into personal seating stumps, in which whomever stumbled upon them would find a tambourine hooked underneath. The tambourine was placed in hopes to induce a spontaneous joyous cocaphany. When grouped together, the stumps would allow a personal experience to expand to others by providing space for others to sit down and join in to form a spontaneous tambourine band. Friends, Strangers, ongoers alike are able to have a seat and form a jangling piece of happiness.
