Alistair McClymont, Inflated Steel Forms

Mirror polished stainless steel form. Welded air tight form that is inflated with compressed air, each form is unique.

These pieces were inspired by a previous artwork which involves a crisp packet (mylar snack bag e.g. a potato chip bag) that was created on a plane flying at cruising altitude (35,000 ft). In the low pressure of the cabin at high altitude the air inside crisp packets expands.
