21 Swings, an Art Installation.

This is public art worth talking about.

21 Swings is an art installation located in the high-traffic area in Montréal’s Quartier des spectacles. It features 21 musical swings that interact with the movement created by the person swinging on it. Each swing in motion triggers different notes, and all the swings together compose a unique piece of music. Some sounds and notes only emerge though when participants cooperate and sychronize movements. The piece was created by Mouna Andraos & Melissa Mongiat, with support from Quartier des spectacles de Montréal. I wish I had been in Montréal earlier this year to see and participate with 21 Swings.
