The Bubble

Långström Minna

'The Bubble' is Minna Långström's interactive media installation about the ambivalence of western lifestyle in a world torn by war. Visitors enter an enlarged nursery where they can blow digital bubbles and listen to the music box hanging from the roof. But each time they blow a bubble, they are also downloading an extremely violent video from the Internet. The videos from the resulting archive are shown inside the bubbles on the screen.

Minna Långström is a media artist who works with short film and installation. Through visual experimentation, her works often deal with screen based visual culture in relation to the subjective human experience. Some of her participatory installations focusses on social perspectives on technologically mediated narratives, while her more recent short films and immersive installations deal with certain political histories - and their influences on the present.
