The opening of the Surrli Sculpture – a Year in review
"Surrli" means Spinning Top in the Swiss-German language
In June, the Surrli Sculpture was officially unveiled to the public by the president of the City. Many came to see this spectacle – just for the fact that the roundabout was closed for cars, and everyone could walk on it touch the sculpture.
In the coming months, people gave me a lot of great feedback to the art piece and flooded me with “love messages” – saying that the playfulness and colourfulness inspired them. Some even changed their daily road to work, just to go past the sculpture and take that extra spin in the roundabout.
If you are ever in this area – come by for a spin!
We actually made this video of the pre-opening, so have a look and get into the mood.
