Linki Park

Park where people share, decide and cooperate using our system of cable and handset.

Linki park project is an innovative way to promote interaction between people from local communities. The topic which initiated our work was 'greenery'. After brainstorming and usage of various creative methods of developing and idea we've discovered that the main problem that causes poor condition of local parks is the lack of engagement between people living together in the same neighborhood. The inspiration to the solution came from recalling a childhood game - using two plastic cups and one string to communicate between each other. The idea is to create a manual device where a person could leave different type of messages or just communicate with other people spending their time in park. There are four options : 'conversation', 'say something nice', 'leave a note', 'share an idea'. Conversation is not recorded, the other voice messages are being transcripted to the big screen in the centre of the park. This is a place where people gather, talk to each other, comment displayed messages. The ideas concerning enhancing local surrounding will be examined by the local authorities. Link park is a fun way to meet new people, cooperate with others and share awesome ideas.
