Billboard Swingset


Please do this to every billboard in America. How nice would it be to pull over and just swing for awhile instead of being accosted by advertisements? Brilliant This from the site:
"Double Happiness responds to the society of materialism where individual desires seem to be prevailing over all. This nomad piece of urban furniture allows the reactivation of different public spaces and enables inhabitants to reappropriate fragments of their city. They will both escape and dominate public space through a game of equilibrium and desequilibrium. By playing this “risky” game, and testing their own limits, two persons can experience together a new perception of space and recover an awareness of the physical world."

  1. Agreed! I would so much more appreciate being accosted by smiling faces of swinging people than advertisements!

  2. I don't think gov't officials would like it, due to risk of people swinging off and onto the ground below. :/ An unfortunate side-effect, perhaps. But I don't see why the nearby buildings aren't any more dangerous.

    I do adore this, though. :)
