Enormous illuminated Tetris blocks. A cool way to brighten up a dark alley. Sydney, Australia.
I have an insatiable urge to jump up and spin the shapes so they land in-line precisely on the lane-way.

Kurt Perschke says: “As RedBall travels around the world, people approach me on the street with excited suggestions about where to put it in their city. In that moment the person is not a spectator but a participant in the act of imagination. That invitation to engage, to collectively imagine, is the true essence of the RedBall Project.”
Initially the giant red balls appeared in London and now they have also been placed in Abu Dhabi, Taipei, Barcelona, Korea, Sydney, Chicago, Portland and Toronto.
