BasketArt Court

I had a dream on May 13th and (surprisingly) I drew it the next day. Then I built it.  One idea, amongst others is turning “public sports” into “public art.” Because of this pandemic we are in, I am staying 6′ away from people, so my performances with collaborators are on hold. Someone, or a group, took the tubes down around June 22. I still have them, for the future…

I estimate I spent 150 hours creating this. The bicycle inner tubes total weigh about 180 pounds. And it held together with almost 100% square knots.
