Sails

 

This work was created as a 'Social Sculpture' participatory installation for a specific group of people. The 'sails' were arranged as a mobile in such a way that each sail could move independently. Drawings of all the participants (drawn by the artist) were arranged in a circle below the sails. Drawing were connected by hemp strings to each other and to pivotal points of the mobile.

When entering the installation space participants were invited to "take up their threads". This allowed them, in coordination with each other, to 'orchestrate' the movement of the mobile - and experience their inter-connectedness with each other.
