Ruta Alternativa is an installation I completed for the Sun Valley Museum of Art in March, 2020 for their show Free Play. The show examined the ways in which play creates learning opportunities and builds community. Ruta Alternativa offers the viewer two ways in which they can "navigate" the work. One means is to sit down and negotiate a game of checkers, the other is climb up a ladder on one side or the other and transit across the piece. The viewer also has the opportunity sit in the two alcoves in the top tunnel and either draw or observe the rest of the show from above. In this way, the viewer partaking in the piece has alternate routes.
