As part of the excellent Skyscraper: Art and Architecture Against Gravity at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, designers Jessica Charlesworth and Tim Parsons have created an interactive activity area that allows visitors to alter their view of the Chicago skyline using window clings.

I love the simplicity of this concept. The window clings clearly look like tools, and the whole area has been designed to resemble a construction site. The activity is fun and easily rewarding, creating connections between the exhibit and the skyline outside the MCA’s windows.

Skyscraper: Art and Architecture Against Gravity is on view through 23 Sep 2012. The exhibit includes work by many artists whose work I admire, such as Wesley Willis, Abelardo Morell, Thomas Struth, and Gabriel Orozco.
