Kidulting On Kenmare: Seesaw Installed Outside Rivington Design House

See-saw … knock on the door. Who’s there … Kenmare…
This is the storyline for all the kidults out there who suddenly possess an urge to bounce up and down on a seesaw. Just head to the Rivington Design House down on Kenmare Street.
The seesaw was installed outside the design studio-gallery around this time last week, and is already attracting the curious, drunk and sober alike. It’s getting a lot of use. The schoolyard attraction is actually part of the ongoing Stefan Rurak exhibit currently on display, dubbed “Panels.”
“We have so many photos and videos of people enjoying it,” ownership tells us. “It’s been part of an ongoing experiment where we try to make interactive art accessible. We had an indoor swing set set up two years ago in the middle of winter with birds pounds and trees installed on the ceiling.”
Now, you might think it’s a lawsuit waiting to happen, but the Rivington Design House is not too worried. There is a sign clearly marking it as a sculpture and to play at your own risk.
There’s a huge bruise on my ankle. Just remembered I fell off a seesaw last night on Kenmare..
