On Father’s Day 2016, I installed/intervened TheGiant Basket in Pacific Beach to live for a day, from dawn to dusk, not touching it or directly associating myself with the object once it was placed. The object, shocking in its size and relatable in what it is, lived at the mercy of the public and took on several different attitudes throughout the day. It began as an object of wonder as people saw it from across the beach. As the crowds grew for the holiday, it became a mundane piece of the backdrop and even an obstruction to the view of the ocean for some. In the afternoon, families and children took possession of the object, using their imagination as it became a toy on the beach. At the end of the day, the object had become an exhausted part of the beach, looking as if it were in its natural environment.
