Installation #5
Austin, Tx was a cool town full of good vibes. Throughout our stay, we kept finding beautifull rivers and creeks. Some were surrounded by developed parks and very connected to the community, while others seemed intimate and secret, surrounded by tall limestone cliffs. We fell in love with one such creek, that had bore into the cliff, leaving a hollowed out crevice. This creek, in Little Stacy Park, inspired our ladder installation. To us, the ladder signified Austins connection and dissconnection to it's water. The ladder is a way to connect places especially in a vertical manner. We also called it a ladder for squirells (to escape our dog Nash).   
Using a knife, we cut through long vines and inserted stick "rungs". Geoffrey had a knife mishap and had to get 5 stitches! He's okay though.
