Childhood's Retreat

38 cm W x 91 cm H x 5 cm D (15" W x 36" H x 2" D)

Inspired by children’s imagination during the “Celebration of Art” hands-on workshop held at Dalhousie Community Association in June 2016, this autumn-ish pumpkin-faced frame is visually inviting, as much as it is tactile and alluring. It can be complemented by olfactive, visual, and tactile experiences through the use of scented candles — three of the five senses through which children and adults experience the world. The three ciphered circles in the model have been observed to rotate by themselves at midnight under the new moon nights of October. Then the pumpkin faces begin telling beautiful stories about stars and planets until the light comes up. They never fall asleep, but they keep looking up to the white starry stripe of the Andromeda galaxy, kindly shown to us right in between them.
