Floreplay

Annie Locke Scherer & Olle Bjerkås

Summary

A 10m wide geometric flower shaped light sculpture. It's six arms stretches out in expanding symmetries. The space between each layer of leaves opens a path for wanderers to enter and spiral towards it's open center, beneath the center of the pyramid.

Full description of concept

A majestic & huge flower like sculpture stretching around 10m from side to side. The Florplay is a place that invites you to become a part of the flora, as a little bug taking a rest among its leaves. During the night a programmed light show will bring the leaves to life, and lure more and more people to its center, and maybe eat them. We don't know, there might also be a spider. A nice cuddly spider. You can be the spider if you want to! Or a colibri, mermaid or peasant. Anything and anyone is welcomed to the Floreplay. The ground is covered by a blanket like soft material, that allows for snuggling, cuddling, playing and behaving.

It's skeleton is constructed with metal pipes and the sides with a fabric thick enough to have people leaning onto it. The lights are plenty and programmable to give us a most awesome show.

If we don't reach our funding goal, the size of the flower will be scaled down to fit the amount of money we can get our hands on.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?
