The sculptures form a constellation. A group that can be read as a whole or as individual forms. Some uplifted by poles offers a small roof to dwell under, all at the same height. A roof over ones head. A place to lift the gaze towards the sky and the surrounding treetops. The sculptures anchored to the ground are available to climb, or comfortable to sit on.
The sculptures interact with each other, the pupils at the school and visitors. The yellow-green color scheme communicates with the trees’ colours. In winter, the colours are reminders of new leaves in spring, of greener and warmer seasons.
At dusk and at night the sculptures shine with a warm light. Daytime the transparent material is lit up by the sunlight.
The children at the school suggested names for the sculpture constellation, and they named it ’Beanland’. The children compared the light volumes to animals, plant, places of adventure and much more. They can be compared to celestial bodies, which together form a small galaxy. Or, other things and stories impossible for me to conceive.
