Since 2008 I have been working with inflatables: army parachutes, hot-air balloons, and huge hand-made bubbles that serve as stand alone moving sculptures that the audience can enter. These colorful bubbles invites visitors to go into a meditative state, immersing themselves in the bright colors or music, and interact with one another in play. The inflatables are made from a parachute fabric referencing my mandatory military service and transforming this charged material into a communal space of healing. The audience is invited to enter the inflatable and be surrounded by color.
