Domestic Sandbags by Antenna Design, New York.
The installation ‘Spectre’ is inspired by a ubiquitous improvisational ‘building block’: the sandbag. the sandbag is a pervasive object used in various situations of emergency and temporary set-up, such as battlefields, floods, earthquakes and other disaster scenes. we are giving the sandbag a new ‘skin’ and context, which transforms the way it is perceived allowing it to enter a different realm of existence.
