Description
At edge of the Mattress Factory Garden, the museum visitor confronts a fence, six feet tall and eighteen feet long. Letters cut out of the white plastic spell out PENSAMIENTO, “thought” in Spanish. The cutout letters allow the viewer to see into the Garden, while at the same time, it fences them out.
