Inflatable Art

Glowlab just game out with their latest newsletter, including a piece by IMD luminary Marc Tuters on the Fete Mobile that he and his merry band of pneumatic Canucks conceived and built. They premiered it at last summer’s ISEA 2006 festival. Nothing beats art in the air, particularly if it involves balloons or blimps or other inflatables.

Usman Haque just reminded of his Sky Ear project, which recently appeared as a commissioned project for the Singapore Biennial. Another great inflatables art-technology project.

Why do I blog this?Physical art-technology that becomes spectacular is a great way to create interesting kinds of public social formations.
