Back in the saddle

Architect Didier Faustino created “Double Happiness,” a swing set within a billboard, for the 2011 Shenzhen-Hong Kong Biennial paired with Vika Gazinskaya Cropped Wool Top.

Weeks away from writing (while traveling in Italy) turned into a month-long lapse that grew into a summer gulf of guilt. No more excuses. Time to get back into the saddle with a fun frolic back in time to a swing set setup by architect Didier Faustino for the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Bi-City Biennial of Urbanism and Architecture in 2011. Two-part urban reclamation and risky recreation, “Double Happiness” provided a sweeping view of the city and one’s empowered place in it from within the freed confines of a consumerist shell. Deinstalled long ago, the swing’s essence seems alive and well in this buoyant crop top, perfect for sunsets in the city. Feels good to be back.
