A branched, inflatable form, that when deflated hangs down from the ceiling; when inflated, reaches out like a root system or lung to fill the volume of the gallery space. Inflating the branched form creates a movement of rising limbs similar to the unfurling of an inverted dandelion whorl, in effect a ‘blooming’. The form fills with air, then slowly deflates, filling again and repeating, suggesting the blooming of a flower, a more sinister and suffocating duck weed, or the ubiquitous presence of discarded plastic in our environment. Catalogue, essay by Ian Boyden.
