Play value

Despite its commanding size, the Ornithopter nevertheless looks light and „fit to fly“. This play installation, which is weird in the best sense, creates a very special atmosphere and evokes numerous connotations. The bird can be seen from far and makes the place where it is installed unmistakeable. Children are fascinated by this exceptional play offer. The bird starts moving as soon as a „passenger“ gets on. Fidgety, as if it was about to take off, it bends its knees, the body starts vibrating and, finally, it flaps its wings. The ultimate take off and gliding through the air depend on children's imagination.
