A series of signs, posted at various points in the treed area of the Park, that advertise expertly engineered products that make the outdoor experience safer, more convenient and comfortable. The products -- presented in delicately executed watercolors accompanied by catalogue-style text -- allow us to blend in and function more efficiently in the wild, addressing our conflicting desires to commune with nature while being protected from natural elements.
