I love these. All of them. Lee Boroson, based in Brooklyn, has been creating these fun large inflatable installations since the 90s. Huge nylon structures filled with air and, for the most part, suspended from the ceiling, Boroson’s skills in engineering as well as his playfulness come together resulting in these very appealing dreamlike works.

Canopy, based on images of volcanic eruptions; Pleasure Grounds; Lake Effect; Giant’s Way; Graft; Integument, based on a 3d medical illustration of a cross section of human skin and depicts hair, follicles, pores, veins, arteries and dermis; and Liquid Sunshine.
Boroson currently has an installation titled Lunar Bower at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, and will have a large solo project at Mass MoCA in December 2013.
Have seen Boroson’s work before– always so fun!
Totally looks it. I’m looking forward to seeing what he does at Mass MoCA, though that’s still two years away…
