GOALS is a floor installation that superimposes the goals of six major team sports into an actual scale “color field” abstraction of hollow winning.
This is perfect timing with the media blitz of sports that depict sports heroes through an assortment of mesmerizing collections. The banners seem to jump off the wall and describe the nuances of basketball and other sports, such as hockey and football. The floor design runs freely in all directions, and the visual presentation of a basketball net, an NBA jersey and the variety of slogans on the wall represent the cultural importance and reverence for sports. There is a story with each project and lesson to be learned about sports culture and history, and the kids will have an enriching and educational experience.
