WALL OF BOOBS
site specific inflatable installation
The feeling of a space is shaped by the characteristics of the space, its history, what is present within it and the energy of the person(s) who enters it. The goal of this project was to transform a specific space using nothing but sheet plastic, tape, and blower.
My partner and I created this giant "wall of boobs" as a cheeky albeit viable solution to transform this formal, entryway into an academic building a little more absurd. Why boobs? Why not?
As a person enters, they are confronted by which door to enter through - the one where they will come smack face to face with the giant boobs or the one with a giant X suggesting that door is not an option but where they can walk freely. Those who chose the former tended to avoid looking at the installation, but would they have done the same if it were puppies instead of boobs? What does that say about our choices and what we choose to confront ourselves with? That we treat the embodiment of some subject matter more discretely than others? Why?
Now, what if it were deflating penises instead of boobs?
