Big striped characters, the world’s first inflatable fountain, and a mass of towering arches occupy the otherworldly installations designed by ENESS. The Melbourne-based studio creates immersive worlds of whimsical creatures and puffy, illuminated buildings that spring from the bottom. Typically paired with upbeat soundscapes and interactive parts like squirting water and digital eyeballs, the air-filled sculptures are organized as wonderlands of sunshine and colour that at night time, bathe the viewer in a kaleidoscopic glow of LED bulbs.
ENESS’s “Cupid’s Koi Backyard” (proven under) is on view from April 12 to August 21 alongside 14 artists as a part of Pop Air, a collaborative exhibition between La Villette and Balloon Museum, that occupies greater than 5,000-square-meters of the Grande Halle in Paris. Comply with the place the studio’s radiant inflatables are touring subsequent on Instagram.
