Parade Grounds in Governors Island has been transformed into an interactive playground with the opening of FIGMENT Festival 's summer-long sculpture garden. This year, FIGMENT has chosen 11 scultpures (from 40 submissions) that offer kids a unique playground experience. The scultptures aren't your traditional, run-of-the-mill scultptures. They are meant to invigorate young minds.
Other scultpures include the TreeHouse which is the center piece of the FIGMENT Festival. It is made entirely from recycled material and is the performance space for many art projects. Some other sculptures include Biomorphs by Anastasiya Gutnik which is a zoetrope that can be spun to see a narrative of the confluence of nature and technology through slides.
