The Impact of a Curved Park Bench
The beauty, says Augustin, is that the bench is perfectly suited to be used in a plethora of ways by introverts and extroverts alike:
"I've seen people arrange themselves along its length when they want to make eye contact with others OR NOT, knowing, instinctively that connections can happen when we catch each other's eyes. These eye-links can read minds. For introverts, though, continuous contact can be unpleasant; and even the most extroverted of us needs a little alone time once in a while."
The bench lives in a pocket park next to the Chicago Temple.
