Sculpture and Installations Garden and Landscape Originally created for inSITE92 by San Diego artist Michael Schnorr and Swedish artist Ulf Rollof, "Abandonado II" was renovated for inSITE94. The project was from the beginning born of the particular circumstances that describe its location. Situated on an empty lot across the street from the Pacific Ocean at Playas de Tijuana, the installation was intended to serve the numerous abandoned children who live along the border in the beach area. The installation consisted of several pieces constructed from brick and concrete, among them two pieces of fire-heated outdoor furniture, the "Fire Sofa" and "Fire Chair." It also included a shell-like echo chamber titled "Habla/Head - Cabeza/Speak" and a circle of brick school desks titled "The Bricklayers' Class." The installation became a gathering place for locals and a playground for children. - InSITE94 Special Collections & Archives, UC San Diego, La Jolla, 92093-0175 (https://lib.ucsd.edu/sca) This image is a scan of a 35mm color slide from the InSite Archive (MSS 707, Box 310, Folder 04, Item 305) [Title, Date].
