Phantom Lung is an air-supported structure built entirely out of materials which evoke childhood memories, to literally suspend a moment of childhood joy.
Decorate a white balloon. Write your name or draw a picture. Enter the circus tent. Release the balloon and watch your emotions, ideas and imprints of self help to support the structure. Movement, music and play bounce the balloons inside causing Phantom Lung to suck and swell in collective breath.
What would a cloud sound like? Hear the cumulus noise of cumulative touch.
Cumulus is a sculpture of cloud filled with balloon that floats. If you tap it or toss it, stretchy rain and thunder sounds abound.
The first floating of Cumulus was over Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn. This rendition of the piece was curated for the Northside Festival.
BIg kids tapped Cumulus to hear their cloud frequency and little
kids touched it to feel the puffy fur. One player took a nap underneath the shade of Cumulus; daydreaming shapes into the accumulated soundcloud above her.
The first images conjured upon a listen to Idgy Dean's "onion's milk"?
Suspend an onion heart sculpture in mid-air.
Pump milk through the silicone aorta.
Do not cry as onion milk spills on the floor.
Androgens conspire against Ophelia.
After several trips to the hardware store and months of trial and error we constructed an onion heart. It's vigorous palpitations pump viscous milk through onion arteries and veins.
