We Want To Go To There: Dublin’s Urban Playground

For a project called “The City Is A Playground,” artist and self-described “urban hacktivist” Florian Rivière used hot pink duct tape to create playground games around the city of Dublin. He improvised mazes and hopscotch squares and race tracks in all kinds of unexpected places, but unfortunately for those of us who would love to get some quality playtime in, the works are not exactly user-friendly: a maze leads into an office building, race lanes stop abruptly at a brick wall, and as you can see, anyone hoping to partake in this game of hopscotch would be stopped by an imposing metal fence. Is it a powerful commentary on the rigidity of adult life in the city? Yes. Does it also have me itching to buy a bucket of sidewalk chalk and play some fucking hopscotch? Definitely. [Neatorama]
