The images show development of a work through several different configurations, from mousepad through to permanent installation.

The work was developed for a special needs primary school to function in the playground as a multi-sensory artwork with several textures and abstract shapes to engage with.

The work functions as a piece of abstract sculpture and as a play zone for the pupils. Cast rubber EPDM on the ground provides a safe surface for play while also signalling that the sculpture can be interacted with as the material is used throughout the playground.
