Simparch a collaborative group, maintained by Matt Lynch and Steven Badgett, creates large-scale interactive artworks which examine building practices and the concept of site specificity. The ethos that art should act as a framework for social interaction is central to their work. Previous projects include Freebasin, an installation which comprised a fully functioning wooden bowl designed for skateboarding. This work could be seen as a large sculpture as well as being a forum for encouraging social interaction between the skateboarders and those observing them.
