Jorrit van de Waal (NL)

Mechanimal Life


A collection of remarkable creatures are guests in the greenery of the City Oasis. Jorrit van de Waal composes creatures from everyday objects and technological gadgets that immediately appeal to the imagination.

Jorrit van de Waal attributes behavioral properties to found objects, resulting in animal-like kinetic sculptures. In a humorous way, the artist makes you look at the objects in a different way. Or did you not know that a canoe, stripped of its natural environment – the water – is a heron?
