‘Transformer Display of Community Information and Activation’ is a neighborhood-specific sculpture that displays informational materials and objects that raise awareness of Miami-based organizations and causes. At its core, it provides a public service: giving voice to and encouraging participation in community groups and political causes. In sculptural terms, it is an assemblage constructed from re-configured salvaged furniture, reused hardware and political flyers. The artists’ intention for this moveable sculpture is that it can be placed on other sites in the future, accommodating the specific needs of local organizations.
