“One coloured balloon (filled with a breath) suspended from the ceiling from white ribbon, a second ballon (filled with helium) fixed to the floor floating up on a white ribbon. The two balloons gently touch each other at approximately head height.”
“Visitors are invited to write their names in the spiral-bound notebook by moving a blank page over the tip of the fixed pen. Designed by NASA at great expense, this implement (also called a “moon pen”) can write at any angle. Scientists working in the Russian space program exploring the problem of how to mark surfaces in zero-gravity determined that lead pencils worked well enough.”
“An edition of 57 sealed cans each containing a composite mix of 57 Heinz canned foods. Commissioned by the Design Museum London.”
“Dimensions variable (objects are selected and stacked so the space between each shelf is identical). Wooden shelves, metal bracket, and miscellaneous items collected from the immediate vicinity of the gallery.”

Linen-Cupboard-House (2002, Edition of 4) by Jurgen Bey
Materials: Found furniture, textiles, mattress, stone, coating
“Just as children imaginatively build fortresses, Jurgen Bey used old furniture to create this guest room. It is like the gingerbread house in the classic fairy story, where Hansel and Gretel were promised sanctuary but were deceived by the witch. Their story can be understood as a parable of the loss of innocence.”
Tree-trunk Bench (1999) by Jurgen Bey
“A fallen tree can serve as a seat. The addition of bronze classical chair backs makes it a proper piece of furniture, a crossing between nature and culture. Jurgen Bey makes clear that it is ridiculous to transport trees when they are locally available. Therefore only the chair backs are for sale.”
