In the midst of spring and with summer around the corner, Montreal is setting up art installations around the city. The first interactive installment is 21 Balançoires, or 21 Swings. At Place des Arts, a block of musical swings are in place for people to swing and make some tunes. With each swing the bottom of the chair is lit up, and a musical note is played as you swing higher up.
I don’t know about you, but swinging was a favorite of mine as a child. And as of last Friday, I guess I still get a kick out of it. Nick and I swung, taking turns as the swings were all full to get one of our own. Always a kid at heart, we definitely enjoyed our time swinging.
