Rossin’s Haha Real is an original, site-specific media and sound installation created for the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern. This work will transform this vast industrial relic into a unique world, drawing on both innovative technologies and ancient storytelling methods. Taking key inspiration from the classic children’s story, The Velveteen Rabbit, Rossin’s work will invoke themes of transformation and loss.
