The Bartlett School of Architecture tutor and interactive artist Usman Haque hired me through an ex-student of his to help him document an artwork he had been commissioned to do for the Singapore Biennale. Details of the work is available at his website. Titled “Open Burble”, it was to be released by the Prime Minister during the opening ceremony of the Biennale. Essentially a giant installation consisting of helium-filled balloons with LEDs inside them, the work required the assistance of a team of about 50 volunteers to set up. I won’t spend too much words describing it, as you can read more about it on Usman’s website. I’ve busted my Flickr account limit so I’m sorry I had to cut out quite a number of the photos (the numbers on the photos tell the story). Anyway, I’ve included a short animation of the balloons somewhere.
