Each of the ten solitary chairs located in and around the Fort Scott Parade Ground had a specific focus and relationship to the site. An observer sitting in a chair could experience an acute awareness of the site’s topography; the relationship of the sky to the light reflecting off the parade ground; and an unexpected view of the landscape. In this way, the chair and its occupant became part of the secret theater of the site, quietly borrowing the Great Blue Heron’s techniques of still hunting and still viewing.
