Hey, remember that scene in that movie, where the guy filmed that plastic bag? That was American Beauty, right? I can’t recall. Anyway, this is that, with a techie twist.
One hundred and eight is an installation by artist Nils Voelker that sees 108 plastic bags become… well, this. Each bag is attached to two CPU cooling fans – one to inflate, the other to deflate. The resulting wall of lungs is nothing short of hypnotic. While the re-appropriation of computer parts is cool on its own, this is one installation piece that’s simply begging for social integration.
I wish I had the time and money to do stuff like this. Unfortunately my family likes to eat…and live in a house.
