morag myerscough and luke morgan hoped to suprise visitors by placing the striking, colorful installation at one end of the forest. the huge neon installation rises from amongst the trees, transforming from day to night into a whimsical performance venue.

‘super hot’ was the perfect name for our huge playful neon installation rising up out of the trees’, say the designers

 

 

made from plywood and scaffolding, the installation is designed with intricate details, each which facilitate a range of activities. a slide and swing are paired with colorful hand-painted walls, providing the perfect backdrop for photos and performances.

the long-time collaborators have previously joined forces to create colorful and large-scale interventions. the camera obscura installation in mexico, ‘superstructure’ in stockholm, and the ‘swing it!’ festival installation in the UK similarly display their graphic and creative approach to playful spaces.
