Chalkboard sides allowed us to display the rules and also ideas for bets and dares for participants.
Suwannee Hulaween 2017
Suwannee Hulaween 2017 was my first large-scale installation for Frick Frack Blackjack and I was very happy to be given the opportunity by Andrew Carroll and the rest of the art crew for the festival.
The past three years for Hulaween I have brought art installations that I have created and set them up in the Spirit Lake. One of the main goals for this set up was to incorporate the previous years installations into my new blackjack game and create a booth of some kind. What I did was to create modular wall panels using the windows I had previously made and pieces of pallets to make facade walls. These panels were then all drilled together and to 4x4 posts dropped in the ground at the corners.
Two interior walls created the backdrop of the playing space out front and allowed for shelves and spaces for hanging and displaying items. The front was open and had three hinged elements: the table, the shutter doors, and a top element that covered the sign. The shutter doors had chalkboards on the back, which we used to display the rules and bets and dares of interest to get people’s creativity flowing. The table itself folded up into the booth and was designed and painted by my team.
