Thom KUBLI [Germany / Switzerland]


The nucleus of the work is the invention of an instrument that is operated by compressed air and that resembles a ship’s horn. With the sounding of each tone from three differently- sized horns, a huge soap bubble emerges from the horn. It grows, peels off the horn, lingers through the exhibition space and nally bursts at an erratic position within the room. Visitors witness the transformation of sound into ephemeral sculptures.
