One Hundred and Eight by Nils Volker

One Hundred and Eight is an interactive installation by Nils Volker which features a grid of garbage bags continuously inflated and deflated by small cooling fans. The interactive bit of One Hundred and Eight is achieved through a camera, a computer and a microcontroller… all working to animate garbage bags.  Volker: “Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer.”
