Worldbench an interactive installation by Greyworld form the year 2005. Greyworld is an artist collective based in London, and their main interest lies in urban spaces and interactivity. Worldbench unites places around the world. The individual benches are set up against a wall on which the “mirror image” of another bench is projected. This allows the people using them to interact with their counterparts just as if their were sitting on the same bench. I love that the simple idea of talking on a park bench is used to bring people around the world closer together. Its very non-threatening and nobody wants to teach you something.
