I’m super interested in public art that makes us think about issues and how they impact us. About a month or so ago, there was a flurry of sharing on social media about a seesaw that was installed on the border of Mexico and the USA. It was such a playful commentary on very serious human rights issues (global borders, systemic racism, and human inequities). I thought it was brilliant! It’s interactive public art as I see it, and an incredible tool that can inspire people to think about the world we live in, and maybe make positive change to create a world where we support everyone to have a better life. The links below provide some information:
