Collaborative artist group Micro Atelier de Arquitectura e Arte, or MAARQA for short, have come together to create a spinning interactive art installation in Porto, Portugal. The piece, titled “Gira”, was created in commemoration of the the annual St. John Festival, and consists of a giant sphere made up of hundreds of children’s plastic hammers in a wide arrange of colors. The installation, which can be entered by passerby and viewed from within, can be spun manually from within, transforming the art piece into a spinning globe of color. As MAARQA’s latest work in art installations, with previous works displayed in Canada, Amsterdam, Sweden, and other countries, Gira is a fun way for citizens and tourists alike to experience Portugal’s festive culture and atmosphere!
