Giant Water Slide_ Luke Jerram

Water slide on Park Street anyone?

Luke Jerram specialises in interactive installations, and has plans to install a giant water slide on Park Street this summer.

Sounds great to me.

I’m not sure if I would be brave enough to have a go; I always wince when I see skinny jeans-with-a-man-inside flying down the hill on their skateboard.

Jerram spent some time at the tail end of 2013 testing slides in Ashton Court estate, as in the photo above.

I am a real fan of Luke’s work; in particular his project “Play Me, I’m Yours” from 2009. He placed pianos around the city centre to encourage public participation.
