Plastic, steel and wood - 6m x 6m x 1.6m
Whispers and Small Laughter was created after an invitation for an artistic intervention in the newly built nursery Vijverbeek in Asse. We proposed a work in which we connected abstraction, movement, shape and color to the recognizable form of a kinetic tree - not only a very accessible work for toddlers but one in which they can get absorbed.
Whispers and Small Laughter nods to Alexander Calder's mobiles, who used nature and natural forces as a motivation to move all elements. We were mainly concerned with bringing the toddlers into motion.
