Recycled Sculpture Playground Teaches Kids While They Play
The festival holds pieces like sound-sculptures, music makers and wooden puzzle sculptures.
Parade Grounds in Governors Island has been transformed into an interactive playground with the opening of FIGMENT Festival‘s summer-long sculpture garden.
This year, FIGMENT has chosen 11 scultpures (from 40 submissions) that offer kids a unique playground experience. The scultptures aren’t your traditional, run-of-the-mill scultptures. They are meant to invigorate young minds.
In “Reverbrate” sculpture by Chris Neiderer and his team, a bouncy ball isn’t just a bouncy ball anymore- it’s a sound-maker. The wooden enclosing around the bouncy ball has sound platforms that vibrate and emit sound when visitors bounce on the balls.
