“Rainbow Rooster” is a site-responsive community artwork at the Cambridge Ellis Preschool. Tasked with designing a nature inspired project for the school’s annual artist-in-residence, I was inspired by the story of a chicken coop located on the opposite side of the fence of the preschool playground. After the backdoor neighbor noticed children routinely peaking through holes in the fence to observe the chickens, he took it upon himself to create a window into his yard. The chicken window became a favorite spot on the playground. To create the digitized rooster sculpture, I modified 3D rooster files, and generated a pattern that I CNC cut out of four sheets of exterior grade plywood. Each of the preschool students, ranging in age from 2-5 years old, painted one of the pre-cut wood pieces. I worked with a total of approixaimely 100 students. Throughout the process, I taught the students about the technology that went into designing and cutting the sculpture. After the lessons were complete, I assembled the sculpture in my studio, and it is now on display permanently in their outdoor playground.
