We would like to share a new project by our friend Nils Völker, who we had the pleasure of working with on ‘CAPTURED: an homage to light and air’.

For the ‘Oh Plastiksack!’ exhibition at the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur in Switzerland he created an installation called ‘Eighty Eight’, which includes 88 plastic bags mounted on one of the old wooden staircases at the Museum. The bags create a strong contrast to the bright and warm appearance of the old building, making for a unique clash effect.

The bags are selectively inflated and deflated in controlled rhythms, creating a wavelike animation across the wall.

If you happen to be in Winterthur, Switzerland , the exhibition, which started on the 3rd of June, continues October 7th.

For now: enjoy the video and photos below!
