Visitors had the opportunity to swing into the art world in an interactive installation by Rula Yaghmour, Dina Haddadin, Moar Al-Zo’bi & Rand El Haj Hasan for the 2015 Dubai Design Week. Various countries in the Middle East had pavilions which showcased innovative art and designs. The swings, fittingly titled “The Untitled Swing Project,” was part of the Jordan Pavilion. Swings allow people to feel weightless and free, evoking a feeling childhood innocence. The swings were all connected by white beams, whilst the seats were made of stone from Palestine and Jordan.
