Here We Go Again
Kristin Anderson (NY)

The playground, a place familiar and universal, each playground toy cycles from serene to lively, each at its own pace. The entire piece symbolizes the patterns that are formed in each of us during childhood and reappear throughout life; good and bad habits, the types of people that are drawn to us and that we are drawn to, the frustrations and elations that seem more and more familiar each year. These patterns are semi-interrelated, but often cycle at different paces, resulting in a unique (im)balance every year. Even if all are under control (or out of control), it is temporary. Shown together, the resulting effect has qualities of both a game and a machine, humorous,melancholy and endless.
