Six stylised tree-like objects split into two groups face each other across the park Braving common anxieties about vandalism to public art, these sculptures embrace robust interaction. With their duel function as both sculptural objects with curiously soft, pneumatic profiles and as robust climbing structures, the works are incomplete without clambering youths. The sculptures are designed to function as agents of social engineering, orchestrating activity spatially within the park Following a national competition, the work was commissioned by Groundwork, Northamptonshire with material sponsorship from Corus Steel, the major employer in the town.
