Click & Glue
Jana Linke – de, 2006/2007
Click & Glue consists of four metal walls hanging from the ceiling that define a space in which a balloon filled with helium moves and floats through the air. The balloon is connected to a nylon thread and a mechanism that distributes glue. As the balloon continually moves, it touches the surrounding walls and leaves a small deposit of glue that functions as an anchor before the balloon continues its movement through the space. Thread by thread, the installation generates a web that eventually prevents the balloon from moving. In this way, Click & Glue becomes responsible for creating a network that locks itself in.
