In a bubble

‘In a bubble’ is conceived to accentuate the resilience and community soul of our nation and diaspora to celebrate the unique spirit of humanity and society that we as Irish people possess. This work invigorates concepts of nostalgia, legacy and lightness, exuding feelings of togetherness and frivolity, to elate the mind.Bringing the outdoors in with an infinite vision of floating iridescent bubbles. A virtual mapping of people’s breath and how it elevates on a particular day, in the form of blown bubbles.

Funded by the Arts Council

I want you to engage in mass bubble blowing sessions in your homes and gardens and to capture images of the formations of your breath on that day in blown bubble form; to play and to take a break from our current reality. 

I will be deconstructing these images to develop a unified piece of sculpture of our breath, a mass portrait unique to this moment in time. An emblem of the togetherness experienced within this space of confinement with our breath the sole focus, nurtured at its core; that day we blew bubbles.

Send your pictures to me by email or on insta @alva_gallagher #inabubble for my compilation of a visual virtual mark of this moment in time.
