Barely Touching

Barely Touching

2022

 

Barely Touching is a high-touch, interactive sculptural installation that invites park-goers to come together and make rubbings. The project consists of a primary, ocean-inspired platform and additional surrounding rocks carved from wood with plant illustrations cut across their surfaces. The artwork is inspired by San Diego’s geologic elements of change, like erosion, and the ocean and its ecosystems. For this work, Amery has locally sourced as much timber as possible. The sculptures become meeting points, a stage, and places for people to come together, create, and play. Park-goers can create their drawings by laying paper across the carvings to make rubbings with crayons, and meet the artist during drop-in events.
