Buoyancy posits a suspended continuous reflective surface, capable of translating unseen air currents into fluctuations of space and light. A thin metallic film, joined in a curvilinear pattern, hangs from a rectangular frame. Basalt rocks from the Columbia River coupled with jute twine enact a counterweight assembly. Together, these elements form an instrument capable of tuning and operation. Experience of the room is dependent on a range of dynamic variables; sun position, cloud cover, and artificial light are merged with air temperature shifts, occupant movement, door operation, and cycling of mechanical equipment.
