MTE Size Vans Chukka Select Prairie a “FORTitude: The Art of Play” is a multimedia installation created by tiny house builder Deek Diedricksen in collaboration with woodworker/designer/builder Palo Coleman and artist Felipe Ortiz. The indoor playscape is designed to allow visitors of all ages to apply the creative thinking lessons learned in “Playtime in the Making” in a free-form way.

Diedricksen has led building and design workshops around the U.S., and he runs the blog Relaxshacks.com, as well as the YouTube channel relaxshacksDOTcom. He is the author of “Micro Shelters,” “Humble Homes,” “Simple Shacks,” “Cozy Cottages,” “Ramshackle Retreats,” “Funky Forts” and other publications. Diedricksen has hosted, built and designed for the HGTV series “Extreme Small Spaces” and “Tiny House Builders” as well as for the DIY Network.

Coleman is a woodworker/designer/builder who works with found, unearthed and salvaged wood and other plants to build a variety of play structures, both large and small. His longtime background as a preschool teacher supports him in building structures that are attuned to the point of view of children.

Ortiz’s multicultural upbringing between his native Colombia and the United States has impacted his artistic interests, from Colombia’s vibrant culture, colors, sound, and dense natural scenery, to the U.S.’s vast landscape and fast-paced urban environments. His inspirations are merged from each location, such as cityscapes interacting with nature while birds and vegetation invade confined spaces of structural formations.
