Inner Space: Narrative

Inner Space is the third work from the Inflatable Architectural Body series using ARW's innovative inflatable technology. Inner Space attempts to fully involve the audience in the inner workings of the inflatable machine environment.

This work creates individual experiences of time and space, from both the inside and outside. Once the machine has invited you in and you accept by entering, you become a sculptural element to the audience outside as you are immersed in the inner space.

Inner Space was developped in a 10-day workshop in Skopje, Macedonia with 12 local participants. The work was directed by Chico MacMurtrie, with the support of CEC Artslink; Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Ss .Ciril and Methodius in Skopje; and the Visual Cultural Center, Euro-Balkan Institute. A subsequent exhibition at the National Gallery of Macedonia was curated by Melentie Pandilovski with support from the Museum of Contemporary Art of Skopje.
