Art & Design – A Break
ART SUITE A BREAK
Welcome to the ice bubble therapy
In the art suite “A Break” you will meet human sculptures acting inside and outside ice bubbles. You are also welcome to the Bubble Therapy Corner, where you experience the interior of an ice bubble. When exiting the bubble you have symbolically broken through one or two of your limitations, and the bubble therapy is completed.
When entering into the suite you will first meet a lady in a big bubble of ice. It is a block of ice that has been hollowed out so that the hollowed out section looks like a hologram, or more accurately, a void. On the wall behind her you see three people breaking out of their bubbles.
