From the Department of Awesome Things We Didn’t Know Existed, But Now That We Know We Wish There Were More Of Them comes this wonderful 170ft. long trampoline installation in a Russian forest. That’s right, it’s a magical forest trampoline and our lives will not be complete until we get to go jump on it. We wouldn’t be at all surprised if the same weren’t true for you as well.
The installation is part of the 2012 Archstoyanie festival in Nikola-Lenivets, Russia. Christopher of Colossal describes the festival as “kind of like a small version of Burning Man but… with architecture and forests.” It sounds like fun to us. The trampoline installation, which is nearly as long as a city block and entitled Fast Track, was created by design firm Salto.
According to the designers:
“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. It gives the user a different experience of moving and percieving the environment.
