0in">Susan Joyce, whose gallery, Fringe Exhibitions, is showing my <em>balloon chamber</em>, which i wrote about in the previous post, told me that the neighborhood kids, who treated the work like a ball pit at a family restaurant during the opening (look at the video #2 from the previous post for an example), have been playing another game lately. the game involves a group of kids entering the chamber and trying NOT to touch, or be touched, by any of the balloons. i love this idea.</p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in">if you’ve ever spent some time helium filled mylar balloons you know that they tend to follow air currents and people tend to leave significant air-wakes so that the balloons tend to follow moving bodies – add to this that the chamber is well stocked with balloons that are being stirred by an array of oscillating fans and rising and falling onto a bunch of large, latex balloons and you have an event that i would really like to experience.</p> </div><!-- .entry-content
