Daily Tous Les Jours, a collective of designers from Canada, created this cool swing set, which is now on tour. The set, based on the original 22 Swings project, is illuminated, which creates the spectacular light trails in the photos below. The designers explain their project on their website:
"The interactive installation consists of a series of musical swings. When used all together, the swings compose a musical piece in which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation. It’s a game where from the start you need to adjust to the actions of others.
The Swings allow participants to make music with their entire bodies, to connect to one another and to have a sense of ownership of public space due to the music they create. The result is a giant collective instrument that brings together people of all ages and backgrounds."
Pictured here is the swing set, a project its designers call The Swings: An Exercise in Musical Cooperation, at its visit to the Green Box Arts Festival in Green Mountain Falls, Colorado.
