Hidden in Plain Sight recalls the excitement and wonder of playing childhood games such as hide-and-seek. The structures are clad in mirrored acrylic panels that reflect the fort’s surroundings, disguising it as a part of the landscape and allowing users to experience the thrill of seeing without being seen. The childlike scale and colorful ribbons evoke playfulness and encourage users to circulate within and around the structures.
Materials include plywood, mirrored acrylic, colored polycarbonate, poplar bark panels, and colorful PVC ribbons.
Special thanks to Regal Plastics and Bark House.
