#VanBubble made its third and final public appearance at Lumiere Festival where we had the opportunity to truly test the weatherability in a true Vancouver winter storm!
Huge thank you to all our volunteers / bubble bouncers!
The Vancouver Bubble is a participatory public art platform and an experiment in creating citizen spaces. It is an inflatable space produced with low cost materials and a simple, replicable pattern, for people to experience and enjoy.
This experiment includes multiple levels of participation, including a collaborative design and production process. The installations are also intended to create opportunities for building community connections and promote dialogue within a citizen space. The form of an inflatable structure offers a a multitude of bubble metaphors for visitors to consider, from to the unaffordability of the “housing bubble,” to social isolation of “living in our own bubble” and to more playful and light allusions.
