Mingwei Lee is a visual, performance, installation and public artist and he joins frequent collaborator, architect Stephan Freid, in designing a proposal for a permanent public artwork called Grandfather’s Incline (working title). Lee’s vision for Grandfather’s Incline is a narrow, 80-foot long suspended wooden platform that extends beyond the hillside at a slight incline hovering above the nearby Garden Theater and historic Villa. A single potted tree is situated at the far end of the platform providing a shady, contemplative space for hikers to rest, refresh themselves and to experience a unique view of Silicon Valley. If completed, this sculpture will be located at a parting between ancient oak and redwood trees along a popular trail within Montalvo’s communal parklands.
