Material: aerial work platforms
Business parks are modern deserts. They are dead, they exhaust people, they make you feel alone. This piece is the opposite of that: it is an oasis. We see aerial work platforms arranged as giraffes around a pool. Some of them kneel or bow their heads in a way that suggests a hierarchy and gratitude. The passers-by can identify with them or relate to them as spectators. The willows that surround the AWP’s make it hard to distinguish nature from industry. The title might seem a little cynical, but remember: when you feel as though you are in a desert or a business park, let’s focus on the ritual of refueling the body and mind. And do not forget: aerial work platforms are also called ‘cherry pickers’.
