Overview

Spider Walk is an interactive climbable sculpture in the form of a playful, stylized spider. The much larger than life insect is intended to create an environment for children of all ages to climb, occupy and be enveloped in. The piece incorporates climbing ladders and a play environment underneath the belly of the sculpture. This sculpture exhibits a playful and intriguing gesture implied by the color, stance and the position of the spiders head which engages its climbers.
