The Dynamic Lines of Our Nest
20 Apr to 30 Sept | 10am – 6pm | Rotunda, Level 1

This art installation pays tribute to the awakening of our curiosity. By twisting the central pole, the installation is transformed into a colourful mobile for toddlers in a central playpen below. Families are invited to "nest" and recline in a shared space around the playpen. Inspired by natural greenery, the installation posits a future play space where the natural and manmade meet.

Recommended capacity of 10 – 12 people at a time. Last admission is at 5.30pm. 
Parental supervision is required at all times. All footwear (except socks) is to be removed before entering the installation.
