Swings and seesaws make for interactive urban art.


Sometimes I wish we had more playgrounds for adults besides ski slopes and bike trails. In Minneapolis, Keetra Dean Dixon created a corridor of swings for their arts festival, usable by adults and big kids. Another big-person friendly play structure is a lighted seesaw with programmable resistence.

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’.

Get one of these in my city please!
