    Polyester felt, plastic, plastic resin, wood, steel, spandex, relaxation

    Dimensions variable

    Using his embossed drawings as inspiration, Berens sought to recreate his imagery in three dimensions. Volunteers were asked to sit in a spandex hammock while molds of their figures were formed using polyester felt. The forms were then heated with a steamer and covered with epoxy resin. The resulting concave shapes were attached together and installed in the foliage, five hammocks deep at the highest point, evoking the image of a parachute resting in the trees.
