Giant Musical Instrument Called ‘The Swings’ Lets You Play with Others
Illuminated installation for the Green Box Arts Festival in Colorado lets people make music with their bodies
Like many things in life, swinging is more fun when you do it with other people. That’s the lesson from The Swings, an interactive installation that plays music and lights up when in motion. The illuminated seats create audible tones that blend together when all used at the same time, making an improvised melody.
The Swings was created by Daily Tous Les Jours, a Montréal-based design studio that specializes in collective experiences. This ideology is clear from the installation, which the Studio describes as “an exercise in musical cooperation.”
