Danish artist Jeppe Heim is messing with people all over the world, from New Zealand to Germany.
Heim’s outdoor installation art is pretty great: he takes the concept of the regular park bench, that you’d find in any city, and he totally modifies and morphs them.
His most recent collection of twisted benches is in De Haan Wenduine, Belgium. Some have no place to sit; some are zig-zag, curled, bent; some look like they were made to please passing skaters.
They all have one thing in common: they totally mess with the viewer’s mind and if you want to sit, you have to figure the best way to make it work. It’s a wonderfully simple, but tricky, way to help us look at the world from a slightly different angle.
