Silver Clouds

The extensive collection of the Andy Warhol Museum gives a wonderful insight into the development of Andy Warhol.
After moving to New York in 1949, Andy built a modest career in the advertising and magazine world.
In the sixties, Warhol started painting large-scale famous American products such as Campbell's soup cans and Coca-Cola bottles. We will encounter them in a later post.

My presentation today shows the kinetic installation "Silver Cloud" from 1966.
Polyethylene cushions (size 99 × 150 × 38 cm) filled with helium float through space.
As soon as a pillow is touched, a chain reaction occurs and it takes a while before the objects become calm again. The constant play of activity and passivity gives the impression that the cushions lead an uncontrollable life.
The room is quite dark and the cushions move continuously, making it difficult to photograph here.
I have selected the best three photos to show you this fascinating work.
