Unrealised public art installation in an Irish town.
2012

A domestic scene using the Monopoly pieces. One green house, and the car, dog, hat, etc. playing pieces will be enlarged to life-size and placed appropriately in the designated area: The car will be the size of today's automobiles and be parked out front; the dog could be 2' high and to the side; the wheelbarrow to the size of an actual wheelbarrow and will be around the back; the thimble will be pretty much the same size. The house will be created in plastic and the figures in polished aluminum by digitally scanning and casting them. The numerous imperfections in the small mass produced figurines will be highlighted. Everything will be firmly mounted in place.
