21st Century Kids: Fiona Hall ‘Fly away home’ 2010

Fiona Hall is an Australian artist who is known for her ability to make extraordinary things from everyday materials. For ’21st Century Kids’, Hall’s interest in the migratory patterns of birds and nest-making is translated into a hands-on activity. Young visitors are invited to enter the nest-inspired activity space to create their own species of bird using templates and paper money created by the artist.
