The Nest is an interactive installation, at first exhibited as a part of the Age of the Animal (Eläinten aika) -exhibition in the State Art Museum Ateneum. The nest is built from strong rough natural branches, is quite big (diameter 2m 60cm) and soft, warm and safe inside. Kids are welcome to climb into the nest, than they can hear breathing, snoring or knocking from inside the egg. If children touch the egg, it starts talking to them telling stories and asking questions, so kids become involved into a permanent dialog.
The nest is part of the Fairy-tale Forest -room, where all other sculptures, objects, murals and picture books are produced by students in the University of Art and Design Helsinki (Tutors: Maria Laukka and Alexander Reichstein). Murals and sculptures in the room support the scale of the nest.
The whole installation is now situated in the Center of education № 109, Moscow (director: Evgenij Yamburg)
