Deflated View (2)STATEMENT

Commissioned by Cheekwood Museum of Art, Too Close acts as both installation and interactive event. The mechanically-driven forms invite viewers to reexamine their relationship with their environment. Three white, slightly quivering, elongated cocoons hang from the ceiling. Each cocoon independently creates its own dialogue with the viewer, deflating when a person gets too close. The deflated cocoon reinflates only if the viewer remains motionless or walks away.
