FIGMENT NY – Choosing stones – Oh, the possibilities!

I only brought the seesaw and sorting bins portions of the piece to FIGMENT in June 2013. FIGMENT was two (full!) days long, and I was present the entire time the public was interacting with it.  It was a very different experience from Artomatic and I think that the outdoor setting and upbeat and adventurous crowd brought a heightened energy to the interpretations of the stones and how people interacted with them.
