Secret Garden Party

Binoculars

2014

We installed two pairs of binoculars at the Secret Garden Party Festival in Cambridge. They were placed 500m apart, fixed in position, and wholly focused on the other pair. How visitors decided to connect with the other person was up to them. Check back at different times of the day to see who's waiting on the other side, and at night, a spotlight shone brightly. For a brief moment, the binoculars become a stage with an audience of one.
