[Hall, Anderson] Qalqilya Installation Art

Written Concept

The sculpture that I am making is a 3 way swing, every direction the tire swing goes, it visit’s each sister city in the sister city logo.What inspired this is Mr.ho, and my old design.When someone sees my design, I want them to feel the such strong relation ship between these three cities and gain knowledge on it.I will have a plack next to it in order for them to gain knowledge.Well, I think my size of it will be 10 feet tall, and 15 feet wide.I want that size because I want it to be taller than the person on it, and I want it to be wide enough to fit the logo.The materials are metal, plastic, nails, screws, and paint.I want those tools because they are just practical choices to help make the swing.Nope, no decisions are made for safety, but i do think it is safe.Why I chose this shape is because it needs to go in a circle so it can visit each city.I am changing the location, I still want it in depot park, I think this sculpture really fits in with all of the surroundings.I think that my alternate location is the court yard by the clock tower, and yes, I will need to have a concrete area in order  to paint, so i might have to make changes.

Letter to the Mayor

Dear Mayor Lauren Poe,

My name is Anderson hall.I’m a 6th grade student at P.K Yonge, and I am designing a work of  installation art to represent our relationship between Gainesville,Kfar-Saba, and Qalqilya.

I would like to propose a big sculpture about 10 feet tall and 10 feet wide.This sculpture will most likely be 1 ton, is about as tall as a one story building.This project will take a lot of materials including,paint,metal,chains,plastic, and probably many more materials.This sculpture will intially look like a swing,it is not a ordinary swing though, it swings in a circle, and is held by three doves, to represent the 3 sister relationship logo( the swing itself is  the little reeth that the doves are holding).When it swings in a circle, one side would be Gainesville, the other would be Qaqylia, and the last one would be Kfar-Saba(we would have to paint one side the name of one city,and on the others).It is not your ordinary swing, and I hope to help educate kids about it(it will be very safe).

What I want someone to feel when they are swinging is the strong relationship between Qalqilya,Kfar-Saba, and us.I believe that this sculpture will help educate and people about our strong relationship with us and Qalqilya(some people don’t even know what a sister city is!). How this will affect the future is that it will keep our relationship even if we drift apart, we will always have something to remember them with.Also, to help kids really know what the swing means,we will have a plaqe to help explain more.

Where I really think we should put this is in depot park,I know this will be hard to just put it there but I just think it will be the best spot to put it.This spot will help make depot park better because it will help give kids a education about other places in the world.

Thank you so much, and I hope you will consider it!(Also tell Mrs.Monda Poe I said Hi!I’m Lilly hall’s sister, and I used to go to Parker elementery school😄)

Sincerely,

Anderson Hall:)
