Seesaws Connect

post-image
A collection of bright pink seesaws allowed people to interact over the US-Mexico border, won the prestigious Design of the Year award, with its creators saying they hoped the work encourages people to build bridges between communities. The artwork was put up on July 28, 2019, and removed from the politically charged border barrier after less than an hour. The Design Museum named the project as the overall winner of the Beazley Designs of the Year competition for 2020, having considered 74 projects by designers from around the world. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-01-20/pink-seesaws-us-mexico-border-wall-win-uk-beazley-design-award/13072818
