Jimin Jeon – Water Marble
by Jimin Jeon
Water Marble is a collection of low-tech toys, free from environmentally harmful elements (plastic, batteries, etc.) and prescriptive gender roles. The toys are made from densely moulded paper with a plant-based super-hydrophobic finish and can be enjoyed by simply adding a drop of water. On the water-repellent surface, drops of water roll around like marbles. By simply using water and gravity, children can develop their sense of balance.
