String Window

No medical facility on the continent equaled the fame and notoriety of Chimborazo Hospital during the Civil War. Today, the same land is used for jogging, dog walking, and picnics. I noticed that those activities keep people looking downward. The simple intervention of string to highlight the sky caused a changed perspective, asking park visitors to look upward - hopefully causing reflection and meditation on the life we live now.
