inflating inflatables

I'm teaching a class this semester at CalArts called UnBuilt and FarOut. We're looking at experiments in architecture over the last fifty years with a particular focus on collaborative architectural practices whose work might have not been built or whose radical ideas functioned as cultural critique. Two weeks ago, after spending a class looking at the work of Ant Farm and discussing some of the more playful aspects of their work, some of my students proposed that we build inflatables. Inspired by their work, we built an inflatable that we could all fit in and it seems that more inflatables will be popping up around CalArts soon.
