the first was 21 balançoires (i say was because due to my late posting it has come and gone) which was a project by design team andraos & mongiat and featured 21 swings set up near place des arts. the swings had an additional element of playing music (composed by radwan ghazi-moumneh) and it was synced to the user's swing patterns. essentially you could create a musical medley with you and your friends by simply swinging back and forth.

the second installation is called pause, created by NIPPaysage which encourages people to stop, take a break, and sit in an oversized green lawn chair. these chairs set up by mont-royal metro are so big that around 3 adults can sit comfortably at once. you appear almost like like a child as your feet dangle and barely touch the ground and you become engulfed in a field of green.
