I came across Erika Barcott's 'Tree Sweater' when researching artists and I really like it! I like her reasoning behind it, to decorate the outdoors but also it's comedic value. Although my own work has quite a specific message I like how this was created for entertaining reasons. The piece also has a sense of community and was monitored for some time by the public. What I like about working outdoors is that those who would never necessarily see your work within the confines of a gallery are able to see it in passing. I am tempted to use my work outdoors and leave it there, similar to this piece so I can see if the work changes over time.
