One Hundred and Eight


The project from Processing that really drew me in is “One Hundred and Eight” by Nils Volker. In this installation piece, Volker attached plain white garbage bags to a wall and placed a fan behind it that he controlled with a microcontroller. The fans are used to blow up each garbage bag individually. The installation was interactive; the bags reacted to the movement of the viewer and deflated quickly as the viewer passed it. I am generally drawn to installation work, especially larger scale like this one. I enjoy the use of movement detection technology and the emotion this piece gives off. The bags were meant to shrink as if scared when a viewer approaches it which I think is an interesting concept.
