As from the moment Rudy Stevens laid eyes upon the work of art by Daisy Boman, it was love at first sight. The pure, universal Bo-men stayed with him. Together, they dreamt of something big. Something that would move everyone. In a city that is Rudy's home and Daisy feels at home: Antwerp.
What started as a pact between like-minded souls, between art lovers and an artist, grew into a bond between art and technology. A union that connects Antwerp to the world and people to each other, as it was beyond questioning that The Antwerp Whisperer would be anything but a static and passive sculpture.
Daisy stepped far out of her comfort zone to create the Antwerp Whisperer. She designed Bo-men that were 200 times bigger than her trademark clay figures and took, together with Rudy and Jeroen, the exciting step in the direction of technology. Rudy Stevens moved heaven and earth to bestow The Antwerp Whisperer with a unique identity and location, on the "Eilandje", in his beloved city. He got many supporters at his side, who helped him realizing his dream.
And that's how The Antwerp Whisperer came to life and now stands tall within a stone's throw of the museum MAS. The result of shared thinking and dreaming. An interactive work of art that makes passers-by stand still and go quiet. Quiet enough to hear the recorded wishes, dreams and thoughts of other visitors revealed by the Antwerp Whisperer.
