“My name is Ego Leonard and according to you I come from the virtual world. A world that for me represents happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations.
Lately however, my world has been flooded with fortune-hunters and people drunk with power. And many new encounters in the virtual world have triggered my curiosity about your way of life.
I am here to discover and learn about your world and thoughts.”
Ego Leonard and his LEGO companions have apparently been traveling around the world in an effort to learn more about it. Two similar LEGO men washed up on a beach in Brighton, England and another in the Netherlands a few years ago.
The bizarre LEGO men not only want to visit different parts of the world, but hear from them too. Ego Leonard’s main page asks for people to send him messages. He pleads “Let’s become friends, share your story with me, take me with you on a journey through beautiful meadows, words, sounds and gestures.” It’s a friendly little invite and makes anyone wonder what stories have already been shared with the artist and his creations.
