One Hundred and Eight is an interactive wall-mounted Installation made German designer by Nils Völker. The display mainly consists of ordinary household garbage bags, which are selectively inflated and deflated in turn by a two colling fans.
Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer. As long as he remains in a certain area in front of the installation it dynamically reacts to the viewers motion. As soon it does no longer detect someone close it reorganizes itself after a while and gently restarts wobbling around.
