Mobility, flexibility, locality and temporality of the experience, as well as the public/private dialogue are important elements of my artistic practice that have found their expression in many site-specific interventions and performances. During an artist-in-residence program at the OMI International Artists Residency in New York State, I made a piece that involved an inflatable structure requiring the participation of 5 people. At any given moment in time, 5 participants were breathing the same air while sharing the common space of the inflatable bubble. As their heads were free to move, the rest of their bodies were unchangeably squeezed between two layers of vinyl. No one was able to leave the unit on his/her own and all 5 people had to “agree” what to do or when to end the performance.
Conversation bubble, facts:
Material: vinyl, 1/2 horse power blower, 5 participants
Dimensions: 15 feet in height (approx. 450cm) x 10 feet in diameter (approx. 300cm)
