Furniture design studio, make a piece of furniture.  Timeline: Seven Weeks
EBBA is a piece of changing furniture; each use will cause a different interaction between the sitter and the latex blobs full of non-Newtonian fluid.  This project began with experimentation involving latex balloons and moved quickly to making my own latex balloons using a mold.  While I was able to successfully manufacture several large, unique, shaped balloons, they did not have the surface quality that comes with a factory made balloon.  My balloons were extremely prone to popping.  This resulted in purchasing balloons and creating a chair that gave a unique feeling during rest as well as an interesting exchange between the sitter and the non-Newtonian blobs.
