    by Chris Boyd Taylor (EAF13) ABOUT THE WORK: This monumental work, titled Conewango, sets up a unique, interactive relationship between the viewer, the object, and the park’s landscape. The work exudes its own stability and energy, which draws visitors across the park and towards it. The work isolates each participant’s senses, focusing his/her vision and hearing through a small viewing portal or large gramophone-like sound horn. As a stadium controls the focus of visitors to one central point, this large cone-shaped form becomes a tool to direct the attention, focus, and perspective of the viewer. The large-scale cone shape and shockingly bright hues – true red on the outside with a cheerful yellow interior – makes the object extremely enticing and interactive with visitors.
