This intervention in public space takes the form of a vibrating plate that is meant to be shared. While power plates at the gym are used to loosen muscles and achieve fast training results, Leopold Kessler’s vibrating plate has a different purpose: to strengthen our sense of community. The shared experience of standing on unstable ground and being shaken up together “puts everyone on the same wavelength,” says the artist.
