Woven Play Shelters by OGE Creative Group

Because I’m thinking about temporary play structures alot at the moment (Boston PlayDay!  Send in your ideas!)  here are two more unique woven structures from the OGE Creative Group.    The “Red Blob”  honors the skill and labor of their knitting grandmothers, and  “Aura” is woven of glow sticks for a uniquely self-lit structure.   The genius of pop-up and temporary inventions of all sorts is that they can make us think differently about how we see and use the space around us.  These both make me think about ways to energize too-static playground spaces with temporary interventions.  What would the playground nearest you look like with some knit bombing, or glow-stick weaving?  How could you use that to draw community to, and build community around, your play space?
