Located in the geographic center of Rabbit Island, Amphitheater is a site-specific installation half made by nature and half made by man. The main component is a tall backdrop made of soil, roots, and rock. The result of a large group of wind-felled maples, a second wind-felled fir was transformed into simple log benches, creating a scene for future interactions within this natural clearing.
"With this work the artist stakes out the residency program’s concern with collapsing the distinction between practicality and performativity, nature and artifice." – Nadim Julien Samman, excerpt from his essay Future Islands.
