"In reaction to the condition of abandonment and loss, "An Interlude to Stillness" attempts to re-animate an abandoned retail parking lot. The vacuous nature of the lot is subverted through the inflation of dozens of car-shaped balloons, which are sewn from second-hand bed sheets. A network of bellows powered by stationary motorbikes provides each inflatable with a continuous supply of air, while participants continually modify the composition of the inflatables, effectively performing the activity of a lively retail parking lot." - Sean Derry
