AM felt like a kid again when we saw the installation that Scope commissioned Miami-natives FriendsWithYou to envision for the lounge area of this yearsâ€™ fair. The young-at-heart artist/designer duo of Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III created their own theme park, entitled Fun House, including an inflatable moon bounce playground, concessions stands, picnic tables and moreâ€”all in the likeness of their strange and wonderful characters. The installation also has a small gallery space, which offers attendees the rare opportunity to see FWYâ€™s fine art, including works on paper and limited-edition multiples. This is the second time FWY have participated in the Miami art fairs: The duo created the Skywalkers Parade for Art Basel Miami 2006.
