About Evanescent:

“Evanescent” by Atelier Sisu will feature larger-than-life “bubble-tecture” (the intersection of bubbles and architecture).

This inflatable, large-scale art display will feature three sets of four bubbles each, which will have a total footprint of over 1,400 square yards – encompassing the majority of the lawn on the MPAC Outdoor Grounds.

The massive installation invites playful, fun interaction, and is made from a color-reflecting dichroic film that reacts to sunlight. Led by Renzo B. Larriviere and Zara Pasfield, Atelier Sisu is an award-winning Sydney-based art practice, aiming to provide a unique spatial experience for its visitors.
