170-Foot-Long Trampoline Installed in Russian Forest
(MOSCOW) -- A nearly 170-foot-long trampoline trail has been installed in a Russian forest as part of the 2012 Archstoryanie festival, an art and music exposition.
The trampoline, called “Fast Track,” was designed by design company Salto and installed in Nikola-Lenivets, Russia.
“‘Fast track’ is a integral part of park infrastructure, it is a road and an installation at the same time,” Salto explains on its website. “It challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings.”
“‘Fast track’ is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context,” the designers explained. “It gives the user a different experience of moving and perceiving the environment.”
