Interactive Woodland Balance

August 5, 2009

The scales are now hanging in the p@ints studio and the interactive element continues with visitors removing or adding to the scales.   The level of balance changes, sometimes tipping one way or the other,  reflecting the ever changing natural balance that takes place.

Perrywood Arts to P@ints

Interactive Woodland Balance

Woodland Balance

Can you help get the balance right?

Visitors and artists at the Perrywood Arts Event were invited to walk around the Art Trail and enjoy the diverse selection of workshops, demonstrations, music, performance and exhibits.

If on their journey they saw something natural they wanted to add to the scales they placed it gently in one side or the other.  See what happened!   Some of the items added were  leaves,  fir cones, pieces of bark and  feathers.

It was their choice to tip the balance one way or the other.   Some visitors wished to try and get the balance right in which case they added something to both sides.

What  happened on the Day?

At the end of the day the items added were left in the scales and put on show in p@ints, Studio 8, 35-37 Tontine Street, Folkestone, Kent.
