Anticorps

balloons, pumps. Sensor

variable dimensions

The balloon is a sign of lightness, unconsciousness, a symbol of childness. This seems a really colourful mask of happiness, but the form emersed of the all stuck together little balloons gives another idea, an idea of a recomposed body, it is no more a smooth inviting form without obstacle but an informal, repulsive form, it is no more a recognisable body, it is an antibody (Anticorps). And to defend itself, it reacts like an alive being, trying to frighten the others bieng that come into its space, inflating itself as more as it can, and this is the second meaning of Anticorps that protect of possible ennemies.
