The artist always had fond memories of playing Jarts as a kid with his family (before they were deemed too dangerous and relegated to antique stores). What better way to capture the innocence of a simpler time than creating over-sized versions for public display. The mega-sized lawn darts offer a slightly whimsical approach to sculpture and are created to not only be visually appealing but offer a contrasting look at what art is supposed to be. Public art sometimes takes itself too seriously and he wanted to show it can have a sense of humor as well.
