Inflatables and Air as an Art Medium

From the display location of an art sculpture to what materials the sculpture is made of, everything about a work of art has meaning. 

An example of this is the use of custom inflatables in Lewis deSoto’s art installation Paranirvana (Self Portrait).  This custom inflatable sculpture represents death and nirvana.  The use of air and inflatables as the art medium to make this piece provides lots of symbolism and adds to the meaning of the installation.

He chose to use this material because the inflatable represents the weightlessness we associate with death.

Not only did deSoto choose to utilize inflatables because they represent weightlessness, but he also chose an inflatable art sculpture because the fan keeping the sculpture inflatable added an extra component to his installation.  In deSoto’s Paranirvana (self-portrait) the fan “symbolically provided life and death to the sculpture” and represented “the breathing cycle of Paranirvana”.   Read more about the ‘breathing art’ here.

As you can see from deSoto’s use of air in his Paranirvana (self-portrait) inflatable sculpture, air can be used to express multiple messages in a single art installation.  Using inflatables and air in your next art piece can help add to the meaning of your piece and allow for a whole new level of creativity. 

Why Inflatables for Art Sculptures

Many times, art sculptures and installations will travel around the country, or even the world, making appearances at different museums and exhibits.  When you use custom inflatables to bring your art sculptures to life, traveling is easy.

Custom inflatables are lighter than traditional mediums used in art.  They also pack up into surprisingly small packages when deflated, allowing you to easily transport your inflatable art sculpture to different locations.  Plus, since inflatables are lighter than traditional art mediums and can be stored in small packages, they are cheaper to transport. 

Another benefit of using custom inflatables in your next art piece is that you do not have to worry about your art piece getting damaged during transportation or while being displayed.  All IDG’s custom inflatables are made with the highest-quality materials in the industry and include a heavy-duty storage bag that will protect your inflatable during transportation.

Other Uses of Custom Inflatable Art Sculptures

As mentioned before, custom inflatable art sculptures are easy to transport.  They also inflate and deflate fast.  This makes them perfect for pop-up installations in the middle of the city, or any other unexpected place.
