21 Balançoires (21 Swings) is a recent project by Canadian design collective Daily Tous Les Jours , known for their wide variety of interactive public installations and experiences. Surrounded on both sides by a new music complex and science center, designers Mouna Andraos and Melissa Mongiat chose to bridge the gap between the two by converting a narrow strip of land into an enormous interactive instrument. Pre-recorded sounds from a xylophone, piano, and other instruments were programmed into color-coded swings that when in use play various notes, however when swung in unison with careful cooperation, more complex melodies and harmonies arise.

Is it common knowledge that school doesn't prepare you well for the real world? Sure, you can get a good degree, find a well-paying job, work until you're in your 60s, and then retire to enjoy the life you've deferred for 40+ years.

BaoPham is an excellent artist based out of Iowa who aside from painting beautiful females, has been doing his fair share of world travel as of late. Who can blame him? New settings and culture bring all kinds of new inspiration for artists, and typically work as a great palette cleanser for stale imaginations.

His signature staples also include incorporating flowers into his subjects as a strange amalgam of flora and flesh.
