f0amfr0th07: Inflatable Meeting Room

From the pneumatic turmoil of the Tension Workshop a shiny airtight meeting room suited to anyone from ordinary folks to inflated executives is part of a show at Looking Glass. The silvery plastic film houses the bodies and heads of three people at a time for an intimate meeting in the shared chamber. This triangular starfish evolved out of the experiments of Linda Karlsson. Her inflated costumes started to swallow up more and more people – duos and eventually trios.

She builds and presents this inflatable and with the FoAM team forms trios from the audience to form different constellations for meeting in this contraption. Next to the inflatable meeting room a selection of beverages was available, ranging from containers within the exhibition space via translucent tubes carrying it across the boundary of glass to the outside world of the Rue Dansaert. Along this street pass some eccentric people, but just wait til you hang some tubes from the front of a building for people to suck various liquids and you will truly meet some outlandish individuals.
