Temporary art installations for public space. Urban Plays offers an outdoor gym as well hammocks, climbing on a giant game of jack-straws and a hamster wheel for humans.
It is a modular construction system based on zero waste principles.
The components are either recycled or reused in order to minimize any climate footprint.
Living urban space is Stockholm City's strategy for the public space. This concept includes outdoor cafes, activities, events and culture. Urban Plays was performed as a design / art assignment for Stockholm's events department. The installation was on site at Skeppsbron in Stockolm 18/7-22/8 -21.
The installation on Skeppsbron is part of a collection of different modules intended for spontaneous physical activity, play and movement in the urban space. Urban Plays welcomes all generations. The shapes are reminiscent of a giant scale jackstraw game where seemingly spontaneously placed tubes create different
spatialities and functions The installations include a hamster wheel for people, hammocks, balance logs and hammocks.
The installation was assembled on site for four days - with plumbing clamps. The cardboard sleeves were pre-treated with mud paint and linseed oil. The hamster wheel is made of CNC milled plywood and larch wood.
