one hundred balloons will go to die
workshop and sound/visual performance
one hundred balloons will go to die is the result of a workshop held as part of the sound design course at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna. The workshop was centred around exploring the sonic, visual and sculptural potentialities of an element/pop icon: the balloon. This research produced a series of distinct artistic “objects” or small experiments elaborated by the students who attended the workshop. The individual proposals then came together, creating a single, multifaceted sonic-visual composition that unfolds over approximately 30 minutes. This is a collective gesture, animated by individual initiatives, aimed at giving shape to a territory that is unstable, shifting and populated with rubber.
