The JACK is an 18` long inflatable sculpture, made from squishy mirror-chrome plastic. Despite being larger than a small truck, the JACK weighs only 140 pounds and can be easily tossed or rolled.
What inspired you to make this project?:
We were inspired to make a project that could be rapidly transported and inflated quickly to surprise and delight people. We wanted to make something that was highly interactive and encouraged group participation. We chose the chrome material to give the illusion of immense weight so that people would be surprised by its relative lightness. The JACK form was chosen because toy JACKs are unpredictable and move in a chaotic fashion; people must work together to lift the JACK, and it can be balanced at many surprising angles.
