Crinkle, Crinkle


‘Two Hundred and Seventy’ (2018)  – an installation by Nils Völker at Museum für agewandte Kunst (MAK) in Vienna,

A concave array of 270 plastic bags suspended from the ceiling inflate and deflate rhythmically – their movement controlled and  synchronised by 1000 precisely aligned fans and 45 circuit boards.

A constant crinkling sound fills the museum’s vast hall. Like the rustle of tissue paper. Or the rush of the tide.

Or that locust-person in Screen 12, two seats away with the big bag of M&Ms.

Now you have it.
