Balancing Act, 1996

Tyvek and electric fans

Each figure 78 inches tall

In Balancing Act - two pairs of figures are suspended one-on-top-of-the-other, from the ceiling. As one figure in the pair inflates, the other deflates. It is the illusion of physical life itself that disappears - becoming nothing more than a limp cloth bag.
