The three swings were then attached to the bus stops. There was interest by people who waited at the bus stops and those sat on the buses who noticed the swings. We were asked about the swings by some people who walked by and the reaction was very positive.

By leaving one swing with it's natural untouched surface, one with the smooth finish and another with a painted finish we could show the process of creating the swing by placing the three swings on three different bus stops next to each other. We used a bright blue colour to make the swing more visible and interesting to contrast the muted colours of the bus stop.

By burning the wood exterior using a blowtorch and a re-useable BBQ the surface of the wood could be scrubbed to give it a smooth texture to sit on.

We took some found wood and decided to reuse it to create swings for the bus stops outside All Saints Park.

By filling in existing gaps with Lego an interesting contrast was created with the old stone bulding and brightly coloured Lego. It gives passers-by something to notice and breaks the monotony as they go about their commute.
