moving social kinetical experiment

 Three gigantic swings, fabricated from used tires, wooden poles and a whole lot of metal bolts and cables, are suspended from Mmabatho Stadium’s outer frame. Facing each other, and dangling from a staggering height of twelve meters, the swings carry ten to twenty passengers each to enact an interplay with the forces of gravity and ultimately between passengers amongst themselves.
