Wonderkid are two simple, next to absurd, interventions in the daily life of the high school. They are based on objects that are natural to find in a school situation, chairs and bikes, which are used to portray a very real contradiction between heaviness and lightness. The work is ment to inspire to new ways of solving seemingly impossible problems, and to believe that there are solutions even though things seem difficult or in fact heavy.
