The “Red Balls” in the public art

What makes a ball which is red so interesting for the artists?

1- Red Ball (RB) project (first picture above):  As a brief look at this one, the red ball attracts the attention in the urban areas. This single form as RED and ROUND (ball) emphasizes on the architectural constructions and the distances we might have not noticed before. In addition it prepares a playing opportunity for the public audience. Therefore the people hit it, jump onto it, take pictures with it, use the trompe-l’œil quality in it.

If a piece of sculpture could work in relation with the architectural constructions, this is the closest it can get.

2- Simone Decker hence, sees a red ball in a different way.  It becomes a bubble of a bubble-gum floating and flying in the air, once stopped by the earth.
