Walk Inside

  • Year: 2001
  • Material: Various including Ice Flowers, the World Radio installation and a sculpture of a dog made of children’s clay.
  • Dimensions: Various
  • Commission: Het Schild, Wolfheze (NL)
  • Production: Jurgen Bey and Hella Jongerius

Hella Jongerius and designer Jurgen Bey worked on the commission for Het Schild in Wolfheze in the Netherlands, a centre for visually handicapped elderly people. The major challenge was to catch the interest of blind and partially sighted people as well as sighted people. Jongerius and Bey decided to create a walk full of surprises. Residents and visitors can experience the installations by touching, feeling and hearing them and, now and then, by seeing them. While walking along the corridors one might meet a cuddly, pliable dog, sense the coldness of an ice flower, or suddenly hear soft noises.
