Rock Rock Around the Block is an inclusive, interactive project that is part merry-go-around, part rocking chair, part railroad handcar, and a whole lot of fun.

Part merry-go-around, part rocking chair, part railroad handcar, and tons of fun, Rock Rock Around the Block is a kinetic art installation inspired by natural forms and San Francisco’s unique character. Passersby are invited to sit in the lily-pad shaped seating pods, from which they can cooperate by turning the central control wheel. As the Cable-Car inspired turnaround turntable rotates, the pods rise up and down, and rock back and forth, creating a delightful, undulating motion. Rock Rock Around the Block is an inclusive, interactive project that reminds us of the joys of the pre-digital era and the wonders that can be achieved through collaborative play.
