i pushed that out there

i pushed that out there, 2009; wood, fabric, paint; 4′ x 4′ x 8′

i pushed that out there is a “vehicle” to explore the landscape. By pushing the structure to each new destination, I could climb the stairs to the lookout point and view this new environment from a place of perceived safety. The structure was heavy and burdensome, did not move well across the snow and got sideways glances from the local sheep.
