100 Acres: Funky Bones by Atelier Van Lieshout

Huh, what’s this? A gigantic Misfits logo? No, it’s Funky Bones by the Rotterdam-based multidisciplinary studio Atelier Van Lieshout. It’s part of the sculpture park 100 Acres in Indianapolis.

Basically, this is a set of 20 fiberglass benches/climbing structures in the middle of a meadow, which together form a stylized human skeleton. It’s not my favorite sculpture at 100 Acres, but I appreciate that you can directly interact with it.

Some of the sculptures in the park include Team Building (Align) by Team A, Stratum Pier by Kendall Buster, Free Basket by Los Carpinteros, Bench Around the Lake by Jeppe Hein, Eden II by Tea Mäkipää, Chop Stick by visiondivision, and NOTICE: A Flock of Signs by Kim Beck [this last one is currently my favorite of the bunch].
