Touch Punch Trunk, 2015. Marine-grade vinyl, polyester stuffing, mattress foam, old clothes, ratchet straps, resin zipper. 52 x 36 x 36 inches. Installed on a horse chestnut tree in Elm Park, Worcester, MA for Art in the Park 2015, May through October 2015. Installation participation by Greg Lowenberg and Art in the Park Worcester Staff.
By the end of the summer, after many months of use of Touch Punch Trunk, the grass that had grown around the base of the chestnut tree was trampled to dust. The circle of dry dirt around the tree became a boxing ring!
