You Are Magic

Alicia Eggert (USA) is an interdisciplinary artist whose work gives material form to language and time, the powerful but invisible forces that shape our perception of reality.

This large scale interactive inflatable sculpture is designed to inspire wonder and evoke the power of collaboration. When two people hold hands with each person touching the handprint sensors, they complete an electrical circuit and the sculpture comes to life. The sculpture grows larger the longer participants hold hands, but as soon as they release their hands the circuit is broken, and the sculpture deflates.
