Felix Silvester

Coated eps, lifted ground
Proposal: 2011
Commissioner: City of Winterswijk

For the site of a former solicitor’s garden, the city of Winterswijk asked me to create a spatial object with a sculptural feel that would invite play and meet safety standards for playground equipment.

Felix Sylvester (“wild cat”) enhances the mysterious feeling of the park and lets children make up their own game and story.

Felix is only recognizable as an animal from afar; up close it is a strange collection of forms that create a maze-like object for climbing, jumping or sitting.
