airbags (en)


On opening the door of the room and entering, the motors start, it is noisy, motion begins, blue plastic bags that hitherto lay limply on the floor expand, start a slow fitful dance, elevate slightly above the floor. The waste air tubes arched towards the floor from their points of emergence from cardboard boxes start moving, too. Anthropomorph motions, with the tubes resembling little legs. These tentative motions, however, are absurd. The two machines, airbag, single and airbag, double, remain stationary. The room scenario will deflate within minutes as soon as no visitor moves about.
