Social commentary on the current state of the excessive use of large scale architecture in the production of goods, the project, called Critical Blocks, sought to illuminate this complex problem in simple wooden shapes. But in an ironic twist worthy of the world we live in today, the reaction of children to the ‘toys’ has led Roovers to think about mass production of the pieces themselves. “I have even been discussing the possibilities of putting my work on the market as real toys.” Hurray for industrialization!
