Inflated Steel Forms

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.
