Video reblogged from Archie McPhee's Endless Geyser of AWESOME! with 97 notes

archiemcphee:

In this video you see a large section of pavement in Bourges, France that was implanted with a liquid-filled pad covered in bricks to match the surrounding pavement. It looks like the most uncomfortable waterbed we’ve ever seen, and it also looks like a whole lot of fun to walk on. But it’s a seemingly whimsical project with a serious message.

Entitled La Ville Molle (‘The Soft City’) and created in collaboration with the National Art School of Bourges and FRAC Centre, “The project was meant to question the ‘hardness of the city and its ability to change.’” And perhaps our ability to change as well. Encountering and walking over such an unusual and unfamiliar surface momentarily alters one’s relationship with the ground and the city itself. We think it’s a rather awesome concept and we really want to go jump on it.
