“Click and Glue” is an autonomous installation that “locks itself into a corner” using a complex system of mechanical actions. The piece consists of a floating balloon equipped with a hot glue gun, nylon threads, electro-magnets, and an enclosure built with steel walls. The Balloon bounces between the walls puling a nylon thread behind itself, when it hits a wall, it sticks to the wall with magnets and uses the glue guns to anchor the thread down. The result is a nylon web woven with the threads filling the space. Check out the link below for some videos of the piece in action.
