"Michael encourages our adult egos to be overwhelmed by the chance to be childish with this over-sized classic, but still playful work. Who can resist the temptation to enter into a work of art? What if you could not only walk into one but encourage the creation of sound at the same time? “BOING!” allows adults to act like children and children to act their age. The large spiral cuts within the giant circles emerge with an additional surprise and color. The bright red of the inside becomes apparent and intrigues the viewer for closer inspection upon entering.
