Loquacious and Lovely

Sophi Kravitz's avatar Sophi Kravitz

Illuminated and physically interactive, my submission to ArtPrize typifies my approach as an artist and technologist. My overarching purpose is to offer children, adults and families delightful opportunities to experience the spontaneity of child's play. The unicorns' larger than life cartoon-like characteristics humorously invite both interaction and viewing. It is joyous to ride, and just as much fun to watch. As visitors approach they view bouncing and bobbing participants on this version of an everyday playground. The visual scheme: the unicorns mesmerize with oversized bright eyes, wide smiles, and a cute horn to match their cute bodies. Loquacious’ character is more talkative and vibrant, while Lovely is more demure and reserved. The work invites participants to play while gradually revealing delightful features hidden in plain sight. Visitors of all ages will want to jump on for a ride!
