The Kid Should See This

Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s ADA at Suwon IPark Museum of Art

Karina Smigla-Bobinski‘s helium-filled ADA, an interactive kinetic installation, has 300 sticks of charcoal across its transparent surface. The white room that surrounds it is the canvas. See how the walls gather black lines as visitors interact with ADA in this video at South Korea’s Suwon IPark Museum of Art.

The slower-paced video below, filmed at The Lowry in Manchester, England, shows a darkened ADA (mostly) free-floating around.

Next, see how ADA is made: The jazz of a helium ball & charcoal.
