In this intriguing art installation entitled 'Suspended', created by Mona Hatoum; each swing-seat has been incised with a city map. As passing visitors wander through the installation and create air-currents; the chains sway gently and the effect is both visually elegant yet slightly eerie. More conceptually speaking; the map-seats represent floating archipelagos of urban islands and imply geographical-movement and dislocation. If you're willing to look a bit deeper and possibly swing a bit harder - the seats clash violently and ideas such as migrational and cultural discord erupt. Good eh?! Click here to see more.
