Shortlisted for the Vienna Design Week 2017
Project with Ashleigh Killa (The Maak) and Hagar Al Laham
Through PLAY, we aim to neutralize cultures, races and ages, creating a common and shareable experience of joy between strangers. The trampoline, a well-known and relatable object, is used to bring people who do not know each other together in an intimate space.
The intrigue and desire to jump encourages people out of their comfort zones, and onto the trampoline with someone new. A set of graphic instructions accompany the installation to encourage meaningful interaction. After the experience, people are asked to ‘leave their mark’ by threading their favourite colour ribbon into the trampoline’s safety net. Over time, the installation will become a tapestry of experiences, colours and people.
