    Two stacks of plywood form temporary minimal monoliths near the north entrance to the Park. Individuals are encouraged to repurpose the elements of this work in any amount, for any use, transforming the stacks from stationary structures into agents of giving and participation. Viewers cannot only acquire the work, challenging the traditional commodification of artworks and objects, but are also empowered to determine their own level of participation. Ephemeral in form, the work leaves its impression on Socrates grass as a reminder of its past and a possibility of its new home.
