THE WORRYBALL
Interactive Artwork


www.theworryball.com

The worryball is an interactive sculpture, living partly online, that consists of more than 6000 individual Guatemalan worry dolls, woven into a spherical shape. According to Guatemalan folklore, if you whisper your worries to a worrydoll before going to sleep and place it under your pillow, the worries would have gone away by the morning.

When exhibited, the worryball broadcasts real recorded worries from various participants from around the world through an internal speaker. Participants can share their worries on the worryball website, where they can also experience a virtual version of the sculpture.
