Envisioning the public space as our playground, Temporary Escapism instills little doses of human touch as a way of easing us into a new post-circuit breaker reality.
A helping hand and 'pick-me-up' as we transition into this deeply transformative rebirth of our time, the artwork seeks to remind us of our shared human experience through simple interactions with each other and our surroundings.
This work is commissioned by the National Art Council’s Public Art Trust as part of “Rewritten: The World Ahead of Us”.
