    Beautiful work! Wonder how they are horizantaly, not verticaly, tensioned. .. It woud be more exciting if people can walk through.

    “Beautiful work! Wonder how they are horizantaly, not verticaly, tensioned. .. It woud be more exciting if people can walk through.” .. I assume you meant “Beautiful work! (I?) Wonder how (why?) they are horizantaly, not verticaly, tensioned. .. It woud (would?) be more exciting if people can (could?) walk through.” ?? ..
    If so .. why would it maybe more exciting damaging an uber cool installation if it was tensioned vertically?

    Dave this is not very kind. She just had a question about it.

    What gives, Dave? You didn’t even correct her loose spelling and failure to use the subjunctive mood: “horizontaly”, “verticaly”, “can walk through”.

    But, you know, I wish I had a room like that.

    That was a bit harsh to be fair! *Epic fail* on my part for missing the other typos! ha ha … I was experiencing a bit of mid-day work related rage / frustration, no offence was intended.
    I reckon allowing people to wander through with the lines vertically tensioned would (A) likely result in it being damaged & (B) result in some moron ‘tripping up’ and suing the artist! I suppose if it was only suspended at the top you technically could wander through the piece, but I don’t personally think this would add anything. Plus it would undoubtedly get tangled up etc.
    I personally think it looks simply stunning as it is. The horizontal lines mean that nothing is ‘touching the ground’ and helps the entire piece float in front of the viewer. If the lines ran vertically I don’t think the piece would be nearly as successful.

    Mr.Dave, Thank you very much for taking your time for correcting my English. I am glad that I don’t waste any of my English writting excise.
    What I meant was—1st. It must been very difficult task to install them verticaly than horizantaly.
    —2nd. I just wanted to be a part of installation. Or at least to be surrunded by them. In other word, I was close to be in the middle of it when I was writting about it. It is all bout imagination. I don’t approach to artwrk logically when I view artwork. Anyway, yes, I need more English lessons….

  13. eda says:

    Ops, I see many errors in my previous comment already. I shouldn’t write anything any more.

    You’re a tool, Dave.

    someone told me the bouncy balls used in here are the same balls that were used in the sony bravia commercial… is that true? ^_^

    Oh, sorry Dave, all I heard was “Hey look everyone! I have no important contributions to any conversation, so I think I’ll spend my time bothering people who are actually exercising original thought!”

  21. Fonda Lashay says:

    @kgo I am not sure if they are the same balls. I know that the installation above was in Australia and the Bravia Commercial was in California. I also found out that the Bravia commercial was filmed with 50,000 balls, and the rest were animated in. But I think it would cost to much to ship them across the world.. but who knows! Sorry I could not be of more help

    Dave you fail.

    dave, you are an asshole.

  25. Spencer the Amazing says:

    Yes dave, you showed that foreign girl how terrible her English is, congrats!
    Anyway… I really love this piece, it brings childhood fun and combines it with rigid structure in a very interesting way. Keep it up!

    this reminds me of an art installation called the cubeatron, its almost exactly the same concept but each ball is a multi-color changing led in a white circular casing and the whole thing is programed with a multitude of awesome effects…… link!!!!—-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gE–xe_odPc&NR=1

    Very cute! I’d like to see it in person and with different/coordinated color schemes.

  28. Bridgett says:

    Oh Dave. Everyone on here is talking about you now so I just thought i would mention you as well.

    The use of color here is remarkable the planning that must have gone into this is unbelievable!

    My father actually owns a vending machine route in southern California so as a kid I had an endless supply of bouncy balls. We once filled my pool with hundreds of them for a game at my 10th birthday party and had every one line up around the edge and dove in to see who could collect the most, best game ever!
    As for not being able to walk through it from the picture it looks like there are actually quite a few installations so you would probably feel like you were walking through it.

Do you like this?
