An experience from a different perspective

Linde van der Velden

Scrum is a sculpture based on a rugby scrum.

To increase the interest in rugby I looked for a way the audience might experience part of the game in a new way. An essential element in rugby, a scrum is used to restart the game after an offence has taken place. To form a scrum eight players of both teams come together in a unique position. This is the underlying concept of my construction. Once the scrum is formed the ball is rolled in, entering from one side and coming out on the opposite. My sculpture allows the audience to experience the scrum as if they themselves are the ball.
