Portable Garden

A Tool For Making Friends


Drawn from a hat: body part (head), action (rolling), character (park caretaker).


In an English park, the caretaker works when others play.  In Venice, the locals provide support for visitors’ entertainment.  A series of tools, beginning with a latex inflatable head, a wooden pusher, and a leaf collector, evolve into an infinite coil of thin laminated wood that can be carried from place to place or twisted and rearranged to form a new park above the city.  If the caretaker is your friend, he will build you a joint, to help hold your configuration.
