The Bubble Boy (Needs a Hug)

The Bubble Boy (Needs a Hug)

The capsule goes from being a "vacuum-pressing" machine, a science-fiction world of bacteria and frozen food, and becomes a "habitable place," whose radiant geodesic beauty allows no other solution. Made to be impenetrable, the membrane becomes a flash point in which transparency negates the sense of invasion and the possibility of touch, and the screen/barrier isolates while determining behavior. The case of the Bubble Boy and the historical eclecticism of the bubble's use initiates a circular process that goes through the last thirty years. The artist puts this process in motion like yet another test in which an inert, passive, yet functioning body will underscore a constant reliance on the bubble's protection. This leaves a question: what is left of this "container" today? Do we still need something like it?
