Net Blow-Up – Installation Playspace

A playful work of exhibition architecture is currently making its way around Europe and AsiaNet, the Blow-Up project by Numen and ForUse.  This inflatable installation playspace features a large bulbous shell that contains a series of interwoven nets inside.  Guests are welcomed to climb, explore and play within the bright and airy interior, bouncing in an alien “bouncy castle” for adults.  The interior nets are attached to different points on the inflatable exterior shell which, when fully inflated, act as structural supports — a sort of elastic suspension system.  The nets are designed to hold the weight and activity of a small group of guests at a time, yielding a fun and illusory netted playscape. Net Blow-Up can be deflated and packed into a smaller unit for storage and transit, just like a typical inflatable play structure that are commonly available around the world.  It’s a fun and exciting project by Numen and ForUse, a collaboration we hope to see more of in the future.  [via vizkultura and notcot]

    I liked some of the photographers who showed their work here. I am in the midst of moving to New Mexico and have some idea of what they were doing. As with all, I can say they are good pictures. The style is interesting and showed me something.
    I use the same technique and had won some juried exhibitions. Moreover, I thought the use of this one is a fascinating subject. I Wish You The Best ! Happy Holidays ! Richard.
