Decomputation : Transience

Updated: Apr 28, 2020

For this week's project we were asked to design a Transient experience

A state of transience is defined as someone or something that is temporary or staying for a short amount of time.

In order to create this phenomenon we decided to brainstorm few ideas.

Ideas :

1. Use a frame, and random objects and materials, encourage people to compose the elements artistically inside the frame, nothing should be glued down or painted, thus the elements can be changed and art is constantly changing

2. Use humidifier and a piece of glass to allow people to write on the glass piece, so the message constantly keeps getting erased.

3. Freezing a transient experience- flight of a bird, or whale jumping back into the ocean, etc.

4. Fragile Rose , The idea of using liquid nitrogen to freeze the petals and crush the roses into dust.

5. Destroy the Castle

6. Knife and Balloon

After a few discussions, we decided on expanding our idea with balloons and knife/needle. We discussed on creating a glass box which will allow us to use balloons filled with acrylic paints, then use a pump and needle, This will allow ballon to explode inside then glass box to create a transient artwork.

Internet is trending with slow motion videos of people trying to break materials in order to see how they get destroyed. This work captures the aftermath of this transient experience.
