Visiting the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, we were taken by an interactive piece. Part of it are musical benches, that you can play like an instrument. YSP commissioned the art collective Greyworld to create this playful piece in 1999. Their public art is always fun, a little reminder that “life has unexpected joys”(Greyworld).
Here are some moments, featuring the piece in YSP.
This feeds onto my interest in interactive and participatory art. Their example is joyful and surprising.
