Common Ground
2017
wood, glass tiles
2 1/2′ x 21′ x 21′

Common Ground was commissioned by the NYC Parks Department as part of the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant for Rufus King Park in Jamaica, Queens.

Common Ground is an interactive sculpture that literally brings people closer together. It celebrates harmony through diversity and the ideals of the park’s namesake, Rufus King.

The interconnected tables and benches each have a different mosaic design inspired by the neighborhood’s unique mix of cultures and iconic architecture, as well as by the patterns within the adjacent King Manor Museum. Common Ground will live in Rufus King Park from June 2017 – June 2018.
