Among Bubbles

September 12, 2006


We Make Money Not Art has a great post on a pneumatic installation that relates to architectural and adaptable space.

Bubble is an adaptable spatial pneumatic installation made of large air bags or bubbles that inflate and deflate in reaction to the visitors coming to the site. As visitors enter and move through the installation, they must navigate the 6′ to 8’ diameter spheres that fill the space. When the bubbles are bumped, sensors initiate a chaotic exchange of air between the spheres. If approached the section the visitor is closest to deflates offering a pathway into the installation. A ramp allows visitors to move up into the space and be completely surrounded by bubbles. When no visitors are present, the system returns to a state of equilibrium.
