Prefab automatic bi-part door
7’6” x 14’ x 4”

A free-standing sliding door, similar to those typically found at supermarket entraces, is installed in the center of the Park. The doors function automatically, opening as visitors approach and closing after them. By framing the landscape beyond, the doors serve as a commentary on commercialism and the erection of barriers and fences.
