Air Cube

one balloon cannot support a person, but 300 can.

Having explored some of the properties of this system, it seemed that in order to fully exploit the relationship of these forms with the body, the balloon mattress needed to be expanded. Would the system react in a similar way if a cubic envelope was packed with balloons? How would the weight and movement of a body impact the structure?

The structure could be formed freely before being vacuum sealed, thus it was possible to push the balloons into a cubic unit, which then serves as a reference for the imprint of the body. When it is sat on, the cube reacts to the force of the body, expanding on the sides and sinking on top: the balloons negotiate in order to withstand. Form is not final, it is not fixed, it is only an external condition of the envelope as induced by the contents.
