The Twelve-swing Donut highlights the relationship between human dynamics and light. Situated against the bustling backdrop of Hong Kong’s urban landscape, the circle of swings invites metropolitans and people from all walks of life to come, interact with the structure, and play. At night, LEDs illuminate the ground below the seats––changing colours depending on the position of its sway. The interactive device captures each rider’s motion, thereby inducing different beats and hues of light, reflecting the sentiments of each person through the rhythm of their body.
