Table Top is a raised platform for civic engagement set to float slightly above the ground. It offers an open plinth to sponsor and incite a wide range of the festival’s activities. It becomes a stage, a podium, and a stand for civic proclamation.
Three circular cutouts set within inscribe more intimate programmatic pockets, that ranging in size, allow for a variety of events to take place. From intimate talks, to large civic gatherings, it sets a flexible stage to promote and frame ideas in and of the city. As a whole, it invites participation and engagement by the public, yet does not prescribe it.
This installation offers a moment of repose and an opportunity for a physical engagement in the urban context for those who may choose to step-up, sit down, or lay down together on this plinth. Offering a higher ground, it elevates, it projects, and above all, it shapes a place to encounter and connect.
