Urban Play Interventions: Swings and SeeSaws

Artist Keetra Dean Dixon created a hall of swings in a Minneapolis skywalk for the city’s overnight arts festival, Northern Spark.

“For a full, even swing, all swingers must be in sync. Out of pace swinging results in playful collision.”

And art & design studio ENESS created a seesaw with 33 rows of lights that respond, not just to the motion of the seesaw, but to a physics stimulator that lets you choose an object (balloon, ping-pong ball) and an atmosphere (air, water, yogurt even?) through which the object is ‘moving’.

It’s available for play at Federation Square in Melbourne just until July 1….hurry!
