Brötchenwelt (world of little buns)

The beginning of a time- and air-sensitive material series..

I always wanted to make an inflatable work, but I had never found the right material for it. When I arrived in Germany I started to collect the paper-bags that one gets when buying a little bread at the bakery. After a while I invited friends and family members to not  throw away their bags, and I also installed several collection stations at the university. While collecting almost during two whole semesters, I regularly glued these bags together into square-meters until I had about 50 of them.

These were assembled into a large tetrahedron, which I inflated during the Rundgang. Why a tetrahedron? Well, not everyone is convinced that the earth has the shape of a sphere…
