Primary teachers have been asked to take their pupils to Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries this afternoon to meet Jan Niedojadlo, who will talk about his large-scale, interactive sculptures which he calls "Podules." Two of the Nottingham-shire-based artist's works will be on show at Gracefield until Novem-ber 3. Unusually, visitors of all ages can crawl inside "Shipwreck" and Crystal" and experience a range of sounds, textures, lighting effects and even smells.

The brightly coloured, den-like podules are made entirely from recycled, discarded materials, such as plastics, rubber, foam and carpet, and are meant to encourage a sense of curiosity and adventure in the exploration of art.
