Madeleine Flynn & Tim Humphrey


The artists who brought you the watery installation Gauge (2015) and the sonic sea journey Five Short Blasts (2017) are back at Brighton Festival - this time with semi-intelligent talking seesaws. (Yes, you read that right.)

Equipped with built-in voice communicators with a mind of their own, this chattering apparatus will poke, probe, question and counsel you as you seesaw your way to equilibrium.

This joyful, provocative intervention will unleash your inner child as you consider the role of empathetic dialogue in our modern world. It will give you a voice, as well as a legitimate ride on an endangered piece of playground equipment!
