About the Work
WONDER Land represents the child’s curiosity and struggle to grow up learning to survive in the confusing world of the Adult. To understand the adult world Alice learns to overcome the open mindedness of a child and embrace the rules that adults need to apparently live by – most people live by these rules blindly – without asking why – leading to the wacky, crazy, and unexplainable behaviour Alice experiences.
We are asking the viewer to look through the rabbit hole and be taken on a journey into Wonderland with Alice and experience her struggles; while at the same time, reflecting on their own growth. Covid 19 has us all, Adult and Child alike - struggling to understand, embrace and adapt to a new set of rules we now need to live by to survive in this World – “Where every adventure requires a first step”. The sculpture will provide an opportunity for visual enjoyment, discovery, reflections, interpretation, and interaction with natural materials – sand, sun and water.
By day, the sculpture will sit on the sand with the backdrop of the sea – and the sun’s rays will illuminate the sculpture enhancing its natural hues and earthy colours.
By night, coloured lights will flood the sculpture – representing the fanciful world of Wonderland – these lights will cast shadows on the sculpture changing the mood of the sculpture and expressions.
