Gravity passengers

Three gigantic swings, fabricated from used tires, wooden poles and a whole lot of metal bolts and cables, are suspended from Mmabatho Stadium’s outer frame. Facing each other, and dangling from a staggering height of twelve meters, the swings carry ten to twenty passengers each to enact an interplay with the forces of gravity and ultimately between passengers amongst themselves.

    Ca me rappelle mon enfance, des balançoires avec le siège fait d’un pneu. A la seule différence que chaque balançoire était individuel, ce qui est parlant en soi.

    Looks fun…although I wouldn’t want a fully loaded 12-person tire swing to run into me. The physics aren’t going to rule in your favor.
