Art at work

There’s not that much art you can play in. Mostly kids get ticked off when they try to interact with the artwork but with Markus Sixay’s I am prepared for you it’s a total free for all. We should have included sweeping up the confetti to the MMK list of things to do. The small child hard at work here only wanted the small red bits of confetti that were shaped like hearts. The rest she tossed over her shoulder. She has a long way to go: the amount of confetti is based on the weight of the artist which came in at an alarming 150 kg.
