“Fast track” is a integral part of park infrastructure, it is a road and an installation at the same time. It challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings.

“Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context. It gives the user a different experience of moving and percieving the environment.

      This installation lifts the problem big territories, a problem of long ways in Russia. in Russia all is very big, however everywhere identical, they have people similar corporal opportunities. This installation one more importance about “a new corporality” person of information age.

    ““Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context”

    …how does a long trampoline respond to the “local context” of a forest? this looks like a lot of fun, but it’s definitely not challenging anything!

      If I remember correctly, the trampoline was temporarily installed over the railway tracks, which are kind of disrupting to the forest. Not sure this makes the installation any challenging, but the whole thing makes more sense, when u know it :)
