Social Sculpture

In an age where most people spend their time in front of a computer screen or smart phone, in-person, social interaction seems to be a luxury. In Social Sculpture, Annie Ratti has created an intimate seating space. Two small red cushions are surrounded by a tall oval made of wood.  When two people sit in the space their knees are supposed to touch. You and the other person share the cozy space, allowing the work to act as a social sculpture.
