End Over End

Renowned light artists, Studio Vertigo brought their colourful and fun installation to the harbourside. End Over End is a gigantic illuminated slinky toy that lights up to create the movement of the nostalgic toy. The artwork playfully transforms its environment into a virtual playground. Each coil of the oversized spring is illuminated in turn to create the familiar flowing form of a slinky tumbling end-over-end into the shadows. The oversized scale makes the viewer appear ‘smaller’ and the relationship between viewer, object and space is disrupted. Proportions between you and the ‘toy’ are reversed as if we have shrunk and somehow ended up in Alice’s Wonderland.
