Ariel Schlesinger | Bubble Machine

May 10, 2011

Ariel Schlesinger’s ‘Bubble Machine’, an unsteady device placed atop a rickety wooden ladder, sporadically generates propane-filled soap bubbles that drift down from the top of the ladder and onto an electric grill, where they abruptly burst into flames.

”I wanted it to stay as this fixed prototype, so when viewers look at it, they get the sense that it may be the last moment that it is going to make that bubble, as if the machine is dying before their eyes.”
