Figment Project New York offers another playful aspect that could work well in a festival setting. Large temporary sculptures are built in the park over the sumemr and have a variety of interactive experiences that offer the chance to play, inspire and educate.
“Elevated Earth is a celebration of dirt and of the simple process of transforming raw earth into a building material that is strong, sustainable, and elegant. This sculpture is both a piece of earth construction in itself and a platform for people to try their hand at building with dirt. Atop pedestals of rammed earth, visitors are invited to collect loose dirt, press a brick in the hand-operated brick press, and add it to the sculpture’s form, building up its changing shape across the summer in a collective re-imagining of dirt’s material potential.”
