The Ulster Museum Space Pups installation is currently on display within the Irish gallery. The suspended piece is a part of the Belfast Children's Festival, hence its fun-loving and funky motifs.
Despite its many entertaining merits, Space Pups is actually representative of the heavier themes of birth, death and rebirth. This comes of its cyclical features as the hanging faux canines inflate and deflate on a loop.
Curators at the Ulster Museum have described the exhibit as calming above all else, "...it seems as if this dream-like installation of enormous inflatable dogs is not only pretty cool to watch but offers the added bonus of instilling a sense of calm..." This word choice is interesting given its fast-paced interactive elements.
