Interactive Art: A See-Yourself See-Saw

A new, thought-provoking artistic installation resembling a see-saw has appeared in Warsaw’s Mokotów district.

Entitled Kooperacja (Cooperation), the interactive installation stands in the Królikarnia park next to the Xawery Dunikowski Museum of Sculpture.

It is the latest art project to inject color into public space in the capital, in a similar vein to Julita Wójcik’s Rainbow installation on Zbawiciela Square and Joanna Rajkowska’s Palm Tree on De Gaulle’a Traffic Circle.

Kooperacja was designed by young but acclaimed Polish artists Grzegorz Drozd and Alicja Łukasiak. It resembles a see-saw with a mirror placed between the seats. If you want to play on the see-saw, you need to find a partner, but there is a catch: you will only see your own reflection. This unusual experience instantly puts a smile on your face, but at the same time it may be unsettling. Unable to see who you are interacting with, you get the impression that you are bobbing up and down in harmony with a mirror image of yourself.

There are many possible ways to interpret this project and one of them is that Kooperacja is a commentary on contemporary interpersonal relations and vanishing social bonds.

Kooperacja will be on show until mid-December.
