Grow Together

Eric Tardiff

Grow Together


When we talk about cohabitation, I immediately think of social cohabitation, of living together in peace

and respect for each other. We hope and desire the inclusion of different cultures and social classes in our

society. That being said, the project that I propose to you here is intended to be unifying by its purpose

and intriguing by its form. The sculpture suggests the inclusion of people around us for a better

cohabitation starting with the Me and ending with Them It is an interactive sculpture where the visitor is

invited to pose their figure in the last facial space, the ME. I chose to put the two official languages for a

specific purpose of integrating the two host cultures. In addition, seen in profile, the sculpture also refers

to a megaphone, symbolizing the desire to be heard. I think a lot of photos will be taken by visitors

because of the interactive face concept.
