On Space Time Foam: Interactive perception altering installation

Courtesy of: http://www.hangarbicocca.org
A wonderful example of cybermimetics, Tomás Saraceno demonstrates his ability to erase boundaries of geographical, physical, behavioral, and social (rough Italian translation) natures by active participation with the physical environment in a perception altering grouping of bubbles at various levels. The installation instructions tell to refrain from using the top level if faint of heart.

I'll have to add this to the list of works I believe would benefit from the use of projection to aid in perception of materiality and other-worldliness. Maybe even as far as changing the scenery dependent on accomplishing shapes of the surface or position within the space.
