Collaboration with Christian Nicolay

The work represents the human body’s reflex and reaction of external energy by expanding and blowing up balloons. The tension created in the moments between the balloon and the human body displays the different response from man and woman, western and eastern. The spontaneous explosions create random patterns of colour through strain and pressure creating the inevitable recoil, and parallel opposite aesthetics through attraction and repulsion.
