04. Inflatables/Structural Integrity

This challenge is to create a three-dimensional, large scale (at least 6′ in one direction), inflatable sculpture using plastic sheeting (recommended 3, 4 or 6 mil. plastic sheeting available at Lowes or Walmart painting departments), an iron/packing tape and a box fan / small shop vac (blowing instead of vacuuming) / an outdoor vent (see Michael Rakowitz’s […]
