Giants Among Us is a sound and video installation that transforms inaccessible surfaces into urban playgrounds, illuminating public spaces with epic images of our smallest citizens and filling the airwaves with small voices telling of big ideas.
Passers-by become audience as they bear witness to gentle giants sharing an invitation to pause, watch and listen. Towering above passers-by, children peer, play and pace, asking audiences the question; do you notice us now?
Created in collaboration with children through a series of exploratory workshops, Giants Among Us is a reflection on Article 13 of the UN Convention on the rights of the Child, which states that “the child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds”.
