While Matthew Geller's public artwork is visually eclectic, functional through lines consistently provide moments of respite, contemplation, and interaction befitting the site's context. By considering behavioral design and combining strong visuals and dynamic elements (activated by people and changes in ambient light and weather), the resulting work is in constant flux. The idea is to surprise while fostering a sense of community around an unlikely object or site.

He purposefully uses materials from the everyday environment—anything from benches, to swings, to canopies, to pipes—and brings them into the realm of art. He creates a level of connection to the familiar while highlighting elements of awe and beguilement to make a micro public square or landmark that encourages creative patterns of use.
