#012 - Seesaw

Swinging xylophone

Vast seesaw structure. A stainless steel structure, wood, and concrete. Moves from side to side with a central axis and unique shock absorbers. A large group of users can sit on either side. A change in balance, achieved as part of the game, causes the structure to tilt and mechanically play on an extensive series of calibrated tubes. The melody played back and forth is a well-known permanent piece.
