2009. Bubble Wrap, Tape, Wire
There is something intriguing about bubble wrap. Aside from its tactile nature, its designed purpose of protection, and the way in which it can manipulate light, its most intriguing quality is its ability to evoke childlike tendencies of playing and popping in people of all ages.

The installation was a social experiment questioning the idea that - “When growing up, does desire to play diminish, or does the eye of scrutiny cause its suppression?”
