ADA: Drawings by a balloon

"«ADA» is.. an interactive art-making machine. Filled up with helium, and floating freely in room, a transparent, membrane-like globe, spiked with charcoals leaves marks on the walls, ceilings and floors.  The globe put in action, fabricates a composition of lines and points, which remains incalculable in their intensity, expression, form however hard the visitor tries to control «ADA», to drive her, to domesticate her. " -  Arnd Wesemann, 2010

Ada, the installation by Karina Smigla-Bobinski, is being exhibited at the FILE festival in Sao Paulo. The balloon has a diameter of 2.5 metres with the charcoal pieces attached 30 centimetres apart.
