Appearing Rooms

Jeppe Hein

Appearing Rooms is an interactive sculpture by the Danish artist Jeppe Hein, which was installed in Preston’s Market Square for six weeks during the summer of 2006. The sculpture radically transformed the nature of the space from a thoroughfare and shortcut to other locations in the city, to a place in which people chose to spend time and interact. Appearing Rooms was especially popular with families, many of whom travelled from outside of Preston to visit the work, armed with towels and swimming costumes.
