About Philippe Parreno

Philippe Parreno likes to work across different mediums. As a result, throughout his career that has spanned decades, he has been able to blur the lines between film, photography, documentaries, and various other types of media. He has built up an interest over the years that has allowed him to distort the established boundaries that exist between real-time and the cinematic impression of time passage.

Parreno’s speech bubbles

Speech Bubbles, created in 1997, consists of massive cartoonish 3D speech bubbles that had been trapped against the ceiling of the gallery. Unmarked and floating in the gallery space, the speech bubbles have been filled with helium to make them weightless and also enable them to congregate and drift in one area.

Interpretation

Parreno designed his Speech Bubbles to hover on the ceiling of the space that they occupied creating a massive cloud with the intention of paying less attention to the architecture and more attention to the story. This philosophy and line of thought are completely in line with Parenno’s legacy of transforming gallery and museum spaces.

Additionally, the cloud that is created by the speech bubbles helps to change the nature of the space in which they are contained. By including them in the gallery, Parenno automatically creates a high-tech environment that is almost futuristic, managing to successfully link the present with the future.

Since the bubbles are also unmarked, Parreno was inviting visitors to inject meaning into them. As you may already know, speech bubbles are used commonly in comic books and cartoons to allow words and conversations to be understood. In this sense, the bubbles are frozen and empty without words or thoughts. As such, it is up to the attendee to fill them with meaningful language and in doing so, Parreno successfully turns audiences into protagonists that have the ability to control where the conversation goes.

Influenced by Andy Warhol?

According to some critiques, Parreno was also paying homage to the Silver Clouds which was created by Andy Warhol and exhibited back in 1966 in a New York gallery. However, while Warhol’s balloons were always in silver (and not speech bubbles at all), his were designed to defy density and gravity. Parreno’s speech bubbles, on the other hand, were designed to be filled with imagination.

This post-modern perspective of contemporary art, which Parenno shares with many other successful artists such as Warhol, helps to explain why Parreno’s bubbles are an asset that introduces audiences to new ways of inhabiting and exploring the world.

Intro

In 2018, designers Jakob Lange and Bjarke Ingels embarked on a crowdfunding venture for their ORB, which was a giant reflective sphere that was to be erected at Burning Man. The ORB was an inflatable piece of art that was designed to represent the earth’s surface to scale. As such, with its diameter of approximately 30 meters, the ORB was one of the largest pieces of artworks at the increasingly popular festival. Conceived as a mirror for lovers of earth, the orb was created to reflect the sea of festival attendees and the growing desert community surrounding them.

The orb

THE ORB was created as a tribute to nature and to the human expression. The designers, Jacob and Bjarke designed it so that it could be spotted easily. The designers funded the majority of the structure and took over 2,500 hours to weld and sew the sphere in place. To complete the project, the designers turned to crowdfunding platforms to raise the additional money needed to bring it to life. The sphere was constructed from the same chromatic fabric that is used to create NASA weather balloons. It was held in place by a 105-foot-tall steel mast.

The architects and the designers intended the sphere to act as a landmark for future festival guests. Bjarke and Jacob planned the reflectiveness of the sphere for both practical and artistic reasons. The lights from the festival and the human life from the community would cast a luminous glow over the sphere in a manner that made it appear like a huge disco ball while to the outside world, the same sphere would serve as a landmark for future generations.

The burning man community is known for building a broad range of elaborate structures that follow a theme every year. The orb, which was installed in 2018, followed the theme of I Robot. This theme asked participants to respond to the alarming rise of technological power the effect of technology on the rest of the world.

About Bjarke Ingels

Bjarke Ingels is a Danish architect and founder of Bjarke Ingels Group or BIG. Alongside his creative partner Jakob Lange, the two established the firm in 2005. Today, BIG is based in both Copenhagen and New York.

About Burning Man

The Burning Man festival was founded in 1986. At the time, it started out as a small gathering on a beach in San Francisco. Today, however, the gathering is held at Black Rock City in the Nevada desert. Year after year, the gathering draws thousands and thousands of people from across the globe. The event also invites artists and architects to create masterpieces to be enjoyed by attendees.

Why is Andy Warhol important?

Andy Warhol is no stranger to critical acclaim; his various works introduced thousands of audiences to contemporary art which helped to put American artists on the map, and it waged a war against abstract expressionism. Warhol effectively managed, time and time again, to shatter distinctions in art and he helped to reshape the aesthetic criteria that many people used to categorize art. In true fashion, Warhol inspired an artistic revolution of epic proportions that was felt not just in America, but in other parts of the world as well.

In 2015, Public Delivery collaborated with the Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art, Taiwan’s first museum to be dedicated exclusively to contemporary art and one of the most prominent art institutions of Asia. Silence Was Golden is our on-going global public art project which is centered around words or short phrases made out of golden letter shaped balloons, chosen by performers to express their feelings towards their environment and the histories surrounding it. Words were collected through an open call, and then performed together with a variety of people, including students from Tainan National University of the Arts, National Taiwan Normal University, Tamkang University and Taipei Jingmei Girls High School in different locations all over Taipei.

Up until now, the project was performed 253 times in 1/4 of the world’s countries (179 cities, 48 countries, six continents).
