Sweater #65


On a hot dry day common to August in Phoenix, I placed sweater #65 at the drinking fountain located at the entrance to the National trail in South Mountain Park.  The warm tones of the sweater contrasting with the mud tones of the surrounding environment is bound to draw people’s attention as they crouch to wet their dry lips.  Along with shelter, water becomes a central focal point in the desert and in any extreme weather I am always thankful for the comfort of a properly heated or cooled shelter to call home.  I don’t even know how the plants and animals survive this environment, let alone natives of the past who cultivated this land with cotton and constructed the canal system that is currently used by our modern culture.  It will be fun finding places to situate these sweaters, especially as they seem ridiculous in such an overheated environment!
