— AN ARGUMENT RATHER THAN AN OBJECT —  WE CREATE AD-HOC INTERVENTIONS THAT CELEBRATE THE POSSIBILITIES OF APPROPRIATING SPACE. WE USE AN ARCHITECTURAL LANGUAGE THAT IS ACCESSIBLE AND CAN BE IMPLEMENTED WITHOUT A GREAT DEAL OF PLANNING AND ADMINISTRATIVE EFFORT. THIS APPROACH AIMS TO MAKE PARTICIPATION EASY AND BREAK DOWN BOUNDARIES. WE ORGANIZE WORKSHOPS, CONCERTS AND PERFORMANCES IN UNUSUAL PLACES WITH A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT ACTORS. WE USE INFLATABLE INSTALLATIONS AS A WAY OF ENGAGING A DISCUSSION ABOUT CURATORIAL PRACTICE, OPPORTUNISTIC URBANISM AND THE ROLE OF ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS AS PLACE-MAKERS AND PROVOCATEURS.

While humans ship an increasing amount of goods around the planet, the most transported good in terms of volume isn’t coal or car parts or even bananas, but air.
Air is transported in our goods, everpresent in the voids and in-betweens and increasingly used for wrapping products and protective packaging.
For our contribution to the MAIA BIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART ‘19 we wish to explore the world of transported air. The territory of inflatable packaging, of bubble wrap, air bags, tubes and dunnage bags.
Speculating the consequences of modern consumerism, where every imaginable commodity is shipped and delivered straight to your doorstep, often in half empty boxes, where Amazon delivers a product the size of a matchbox in a carton the size of a moving box, we wish to comment on these commonplac practices of excessive airy packaging
