This is a community project that I ran in conjunction with the Awesome Children’s Art Festival. The table is manufactured by POPP, the public outdoor ping pong organisation. These tables are installed in public spaces and stay there all year round, day, night, sun, showers.
With this project, children in this newly developed outer suburbs community were invited to research animal species that are native to the area. Alongside that research, they also looked at various methods of home building throughout history and across cultures. They were then asked to design their “dream home”.
On the ping pong table, the children illustrated their favorite local animal on the side, and then their dream house on the top surface.
