Untitled (wasted breath)

1996-97
Balloons, dental floss, motorized ceiling bracket; 72 X 18 in / 182 x 45 cm (size varies)

This accumulation of partially-deflated balloons is activated by a motorized ceiling bracket which makes the whole thing jiggle rhythmically back and forth, emulating a sensual dancing motion.
