I really love this art installation in Germany. What is it about? An artist in Germany was mad about the government allocating more funds for senior citizens than children. The installation is a rather absurd-looking playground for seniors. Check out the sign...a seesaw with a wheelchair weighing down a child's seat. Clearly an installation that might anger some. Isn't that what art should do? If not piss you off, it should at least make you think. I'm sure many people have looked at this one with a quizzical eye. This installation actually influenced some of the elements in my design project for the Whitfield/Scales site.
A little more information on this project and a lot of other interesting things can be found on Public Workshop Blog.
