Virtual Fairytale 2.0′, by artist Arno Coenen, has been made especially for the building ‘Hart van Noord’ (Utrecht, NL), by commission o fthe City of Utrecht. The artwork is a mosaic made of colored concrete tiles of 15×15 cm and is set in the sidewalk, across the entire width of the building (approx. 20×64 meters). For the realisation, the wishes of the three particpating schools – De Panda, De Lukasschool, Zeven Gavenschool and also Doenja Dienstverlening – have been taken into account. The work of art is geared to the children’s own experiences of the world around them, as the mosaic depicts presentday fairytale figures that originate from computergames.
