deller transforms the stonehenge monument into a giant inflatable toy for children, reproducing it in plastic and turning it into a funfair attraction 35 meters in diameter. the public is thus called upon to interact with the installation, to climb onto it, and to jump and play within it.

central to deller’s work is an interest in historical events and their influence on popular culture and folkloric expressions. his installations are characterized by audience participation: his sculptures social experiences in which performances and videos encourage exchange and aggregation.
