Everything Is Beautiful When You Don’t Look DownPosted: July 8, 2012
This sculpture, “Everything Is Beautiful When You Don’t Look Down”, is part of the Festival of the World at the Southbank/Hayward Gallery in London. There are lots of other cool pieces of art there too, and I might feature some more on this blog at a later date.
Two large figures scale Hayward Gallery. One seems to be helping the other, but who is helping whom?
The London-based arts collective Robots>>>>, who build large sculptures from recycled and reclaimed materials, have made these figures predominantly from wood and steel used at Southbank Centre’s 2011 Festival of Britain.
Everything Is Beautiful When You Don’t Look Down was made with help from children at the Oasis Children’s Venture, a safe play space for young people in the London Borough of Lambeth.
Who knows what the robots will do when they reach their destination?
