Phoenicopterus Rex: Welcome Home by: Josh Zubkoff from: San Francisco, CA year: 2017
We are bringing our dream to life and that dream is a 40 foot tall flamingo! Inspired by Don Featherstone’s classic, Phoenicopterus Rex will feature climbable legs and a sitting area on the back of this massive lawn ornament. As an art piece, Phoenicopterus Rex is a physical manifestation of Americana pop-kitsch meets modern industry: all bubblegum pink, fiberglass and steel. It aims to make the familiar absurd, exciting participants with the iconic image and then drawing them in so that they may interact with the structure. In its final installed stages, fake grass and a white picket fence will surround the flamingo, transforming the immediate space into a hosted experience. The piece will be lit by spotlights mounted to the surrounding picket fence, to be a beautiful pink beacon in the night.
