Swings: Los Angeles

People installing swing sets throughout the city of Los Angeles. I believe to be an interesting use of public spaces that citizens all share! Its interesting way to think what other things people could do to evoke feelings of community within shared spaces…or to imagine using certain spaces in different ways.

I really enjoy the sets installed in unconventional places that aren’t particularly meant for use as a recreational space. Such as: underneath the docks, under bridges, and in that final shot along the ditch. The shots of pedestrians using the swings are awesome.

“In June, 2011 The L.A. chapter of The Awesome Foundation awarded a grant to install $1000 worth of swings throughout Los Angeles.”
