An aluminum canoe rides the grassy, landscaped waves of the park, not far from 

the water. Inside the canoe, a sheet of mirror polished stainless steel reflects the 

sky above and appears like water from a distance. With this installation, the artist 

wanted to reconfigure the park’s inherent elements with this vessel of reflection.
