The Swings Opens in San Jose

For two months, The Swings will be activated in the heart of downtown San José at Plaza de César Chavez. The plaza is between The Tech Museum of Innovation and the Fairmont Hotel, near the San José McEnery Convention Center. During The Swings’ stay in San José, the park will also be hosting the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest and other special events.

For parking suggestions, visit Park SJ.

Created by Montréal-based interaction design studio Daily tous les joursThe Swings is a free interactive art installation in which each swing emits the sounds of a different instrument, and the participants can change the note depending on how high they swing. By swinging together, music ensues. The Swings brings people together and creates a place for play and connection in the heart of downtown.
