Urban Water Slide

Astronaut Chris Hadfield at TED, Casey Neistat surfs in J. Crew, the origins of Matthew Dear and more in our weekly look at the web

While double-decker busses come to mind when considering the UK, the
Slip ‘N Slide does not. Though this may change soon, as Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram recently unveiled a 90-meter water slide as a temporary architectural intervention, and a nostalgic and playful juxtaposition in the city’s somewhat stark landscape. Participants can glide down Park Street without a worry in the world, taking in the view from a brand new perspective.
