Transformer Display of Community Information and Activation is a neighborhood-specific sculpture that displays informational materials and objects that will raise awareness for pertinent local Miami based organizations and causes. At its core, it provides a public service: giving voice to and encouraging participation in featured community groups and political causes. In sculptural terms, it is an assemblage constructed from cut and re-configured salvaged furniture, reused hardware, gel medium and political fliers. The artists’ intention for this sculpture is that it moves onto future sites and transforms through physical alteration in order to accommodate the specific needs of the local organizations involved.
