Shuttlecocks


2d: Claes Oldenburg | 3d: Gatz Morang

The RL setting plays an important role for these sculptures, where the main museum building is a large, rectangular Beaux Arts building centered on a large green lawn. Coosje van Bruggen envisioned the lawn as a badminton court, with the building as the net. As such, there are four of the larger—than—life shuttlecock sculptures scattered on the lawn on either sides of the net in various configurations as if left there after a game.

For me, the shuttlecocks are a wonderful fit in SL — art as fun, the extraordinary made ordinary in SL as opposed to the ordinary made extraordinary in RL, and as a freely copiable item it exemplifies the accessability of art for everyone in SL.
