Serge Spitzer is a New York-based artist known for his installation work. He created this wonderland of tubes in Paris' Palais de Tokyo, to bring together the power of plastic, air and organized chaos.
According to the article in Dazed Digital, the tubes are reminiscent of the tunnels that used to run under Paris to send notes from various ends of town. Oh, the world prior to the telephone, how neat! Visitors to the exhibit get to watch fascinated as two "air bubbles," one red and one blue, run through the tubes.
As Serge Spitzer describes it, "It’s like machines that become dazed and confused, by chance." Unfortunately, the tubes are not for human use, but the symbolism is just as cool.
