Artist Transforms Trash Bags into a Wall of Pulsating Pixels that Mimic Ocean Waves

Nils Völker's latest kinetic installation titled "Ninety Six", for the exhibition Höhenrausch at the OÖ Kulturquartier, in Linz Austria, consists of 96 plastic trash bags that are selectively inflated and deflated in controlled rhythms, creating wavelike animations across the wall of the gallery. The whole set is controlled by 1000 fans and a single Arduino board with shift registers attached to it. In this way every single bag can be controlled fully independently. Speaking about the project Völker said, "Although each bag is mounted in a staionary position, the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively movements...In this way shapes and the boundaries of the installation itself start to dissolve."
