Sliding for all

Thanks to Jesse for passing this one along. Imagine how great your life would be if you got to fly down a slide everyday...such is the dream of Carsten Höller who recently installed several giant slides in the Tate Modern. According to Carsten, "the experience of sliding is best summed up in a phrase by the French writer Roger Caillois as a ‘voluptuous panic upon an otherwise lucid mind’." Well-put. Not only are the slides incredibly fun, but they have a beautiful sculptural quality as well. The exhbit takes place from October 10, 2006 - April 9, 2007 at the Tate Modern in London.
