“21 Balançoires takes over a newly open space in front of the University of Montreal’s Science Faculty. Together with Luc-Alain Giraldeau, an animal behaviour professor from the faculty, we explored the topic of cooperation which states that together we achieve better things than separately. The result is a giant collective instrument made of 21 musical swings – each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation. The project stimulates ownership of the new space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city centre.”
I love these fun outdoor ideas! They’re so refreshing. See also VW’s Fun Theory.
