We live in such a vast, beautiful world that it’s literally like a huge playground for us. There are mountains to climb, oceans to dive into, and snowy slopes to slide down. A guerrilla group from San Francisco believes that the world is our playground, as well. In fact, they’ve actually added to it, but in a very sneaky way.The swings were hidden all over the city, in hopes of making its citizens feel a bit more childlike.”We decided to create a present for the city, where it would wake up one morning and have a moment of surprise,” said an anonymous source from Swing Bomb SF.
“It really nurtures this inner child, it’s a very playful community. We wanted to play into that, and make the concept of S.F. being an adult playground into a reality,” they said.
Some of the swings have been taken down but there’s still some left.
And we absolutely love it! But unfortunately, there are some people that aren’t on so keen on the idea.
“They did not come to us for us to take a look at what they wanted to do, so that we can ascertain that this is safe,” said operations manager Dennis Kearn.
They even had engineers on the team to make sure that the structural integrity of each tree was kept in tact. Talk about being prepared.
And that’s exactly why Swing Bomb SF didn’t disclose the location of their swings. The city will have to find every single one of them if they want them removed.
Even though the swings are temporary, one member of the mysterious group hinted to expect more things like this in the future.
