Giant Bubbles Pop Up as Immersive Installations All Over the World

Bubble Installation by Atelier Sisu

Sydney-based studio Atelier Sisu creates immersive art all around the world. Led by Peruvian sculptor and industrial designer Renzo B. Larriviere and architectural designer and artist Zara Pasfield, the studio combines their talents with their multi-disciplinary team to create public art everyone can enjoy. One of their latest projects, titled Evanscent, features massive, colorful bubbles inhabiting varied environments.

So far, Evanscent has been displayed in over 22 different cities in 12 different countries across 4 continents. From urban spaces to spacious parks, these opalescent orbs bring a sense of whimsy wherever they are placed. “Evanescent is an immersive, light and sound temporary environment that aims to capture the concept of ephemerality and transience is a visual form: the bubble,” Atelier Sisu tells My Modern Met. “Evanescent is an adjective, meaning the quality of being fleeting or vanishing quickly; impermanence.”

Atelier Sisu pinpoints their inspiration for the installation to the pandemic when “everything we took for granted started to disappear.” They translated their appreciation for ephemeral beauty and life to monumental bubbles, which they create with the use of inflatable structures. “By day, Evanscent captures the light of the sun through its color-reflecting dichroic film that reacts to the changing light as it moves across the sky, causing a rainbow of reflection across the ground and a unique picture from every angle,” they add. The reflective rainbow qualities of the structures perfectly mimic the appearance of real-life bubbles, allowing people to engage with the installation in a childlike way.
