It is the work of Charlie Co, a leading Filipino artist based in Bacolod, in collaboration with a group of local artists lead by artist and production designer Neil Benavente. Festival director Eli F. J. Tajanlangit said, “One thing that makes this very, very relevant in the Philippine art scene is that this is an example of an art work that goes down to the level of entertainment without compromising its artistic values. This is art that the people—the masses, even the unschooled, and the children—can understand.”
Co said the “Dreamer’s Floating Carousel” was an idea from the paper boats one created when one was still small.
But unlike the merry-go-round that revolves in its place, it is the people this time who should go around the fountain area to enjoy the 8x 8 feet artworks, Co said. “The ‘Dreamer’s Floating Carousel’ is to challenge people to think out of the box. They should dream. Anything is possible. The power of dreams and the power of the arts can change things, can make the world better,” Co said.
