A new outdoor installation has popped up in Paris, designed by former architect Cyril Lancelin and made from loops of squashy blow-up tubes.
Located outside the Palais Galliera, and commissioned by Porsche, the inflatable piece invites passersby to explore its lilac-coloured interior. Entitled Remember Your Dreams, the artwork stretches 23-feet high and 40-feet deep, giving visitors plenty of space to immerse themselves in its spiralling loops.
Lancelin originally created the piece using 3D computer models, and the artwork retains some of the sense of a digital creation that’s sprung to life in the real world. The inflatable tubes are made using polyester, to encourage people to touch the piece – which Lancelin described to Artnet as ‘like a big box, but the box is open everywhere.’
The artist went on to describe the choice of colour as one that changes drastically depending on how much light there is. Remember Your Dreams is on display in Paris until 24 October, but the recyclable and transportable nature of inflatable artworks means it could well appear somewhere else in the future.
