Drawing and bouncing are probably two of the most simple pleasures out there, that require interaction, of course, and that is why the art installation titled Ada by Karina Smigla-Bobinski is probably so enjoyable. Even children would have fun, and they really know how to embrace the little things in life.

Ada by Karina Smigla-Bobinski is essentially a giant, transparent helium balloon that has 300 charcoal sticks stuck onto its surface. Left to rest in an all white space, when visitors come they are encouraged to interact with it in any way they please, resulting in dark lines being sketched across each wall.

Inspired by Ada Lovelace, who, in the 19th century, hoped to develop a machine that created works of art such as poetry, music or pictures, Ada by Karina Smigla-Bobinski does just that.
