170 Foot Long Trampoline in the Woods of Russia
One of the best things in summer are the music and art festivals, ranging from a couple-night affairs with local bands to something as massive as the Burning Man. A smaller Russian version of it, called the Archstoyanie festival, among all other installations presented a 170 ft long trampoline. The massive Fast Track trampoline was constructed last July by an Estonia-based design company Salto in the woods of Nikola-Lenivets, Russia.
The Nikola-Lenivets park is already known for hosting a number of modern art constructions, therefore the trampoline fit right in there. ““Fast track” is a integral part of park infrastructure, it is a road and an installation at the same time. It challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings. “Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context,” – explain its designers at Salto.
