Danish artist Jeppe Hein created the “Modified Social Benches” as the project for the recent contemporary art event. Or so we’re told.

u knot knead due thiz
So they basically created benches useless in the name of "art"……. and probably cost at a minimum X5 what a fully functioning bench would cost. Fully paid by the government. What a cluster ……
some ass hat decided not only was this acceptable but was art. I call it a waste off time and materials
i'm sorry…this isn't designing…when i design, i follow one major rule…and that is, form follows function…these benches arn't practical at all thus to me, an epic design fail…it doesn't even look good.
dumbest shit i have ever seen
Scrolling through this post, all I can think of is "Aqualung" by Jethro Tull.
I could see #14 breaking under the weight of some good American-sized butt.
Just because your unique does not mean you are usefull.
#5 #18 WTF, you need a lego ass to be able to sit on these benches. I think I'll stand.
Yeah, sure, hip, interesting and all artsy & such. But impractical and uncomfortable.
Dublin, Ohio Rec Center has similar benches outside along their walking/running path. they put them in 5 years ago. I wonder if it the same artist.
#13 That's a lawsuit waiting to happen.
Then we are lucky to have this in Belgium and not the US. People don't sue people for minor things like that here in Belgium.
"Minor Things" like children breaking their ankles because some artist thought it would be cool to have a public bench that is too high to safely sit in?
They will be removed as soon as someone gets injured!
Enough with the damn pop ups. Fuck this is annoying.
#15 is on top of Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand.
OK, here goes:
These benches are ART, not design. They're made not to try out different ways of sitting, but different ways of thinking. I mean, look at #3, and think of how you'd sit on a normal bench if someone already sat there. You'd make sure not to sit too close. Bench #3 states the fact that we tend to remain strangers to each other, even when we have an opportunity to get social. What does this mean for our society? for our way of dealing with life?
Stop pestering this art exhibition with law suit hoaxes.
#3, #4, #6, #8, #11, #12, & #14 would be pretty awesome to skateboard on
