Architects of Air: Miracoco

When: April 23-26 2014

A strange formation is set to take form next week on WSU’s campus, just beyond Martin Stadium. It’s not a spaceship, or a larger-than life molecular compound model, although the inflated silvery shapes are reminiscent of both. It’s not a children’s bouncy house, either. Setting up shop for a quick four days, the immersive structure is a luminarium, made of a special inflatable plastic. Called Miracoco, it consists of illuminated, interconnected caverns and domes for visitors to explore and contemplate. Miracoco is part of a family of traveling installations by Architects of Air, a UK-based venture which seeks to move people “to a sense of wonder through the particular phenomenon of luminous colour.”
