64 Luft Balloons

Ze Germans love their balloons. And art. ATOM is a performance by  Monolake and Christopher Bauder for a matrix of 64 gas balloons, lights, and sound. From the website:

A room is filled with deep, evolving noises from a four-channel sound system. An eight-by-eight array of white, self-illuminated spheres floats in space like the atoms of a complex molecule.

Through variable positioning and illumination of each atom, a dynamic display sculpture comes into being, composed of physical objects, patterns of light, and synchronous rhythmic and textural sonic events. Change, sound, and movement converge into a larger form.
