A site specific installation for the exhibition Höhenrausch at the OÖ Kulturquartier, Linz (Austria).

The plastic bags are selectively inflated and deflated in controlled rhythms, creating wavelike animations across the wall. Although each bag is mounted in a stationary position, the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively movements. Forms appear from the net-like matrix and disappear back into the surface. In this way shapes and the boundaries of the installation itself start to dissolve.
