In Keukenhof, the famous dutch tulip gardens, 1 million visitors visit during 2 month period. They were looking for an art piece to complement the gardens and add extra inspiration for visitors.
At Paleis Soestdijk, this installation added the element of challenging the public to predict its exciting future. In De Oeverlanden, the Amsterdam Municipality was looking to integrate more art into the nature reserve.
Keukenhof was looking for artwork in their park.
This installation invites the public to interact and become part of a new reality.This sculpture has a performance quality that crosses multi-cultural boarders. The public takes on poses through selfie shots and video as they interact with the frames. The underlying concept of the rose colored glasses was grasped on a visual and physical level as participants lined up to take a moment to document their own performance.
