Ninety Six is an installation piece by Nils Völker that consists of 96 garbage bags, each with an independently controlled set of fans underneath. The bags inflate and deflate to create rhythmic patterns and undulations across the piece. From a distance, the piece starts to look like a single, living thing. The grid-like structure and artificial appearance of the trash bags starts to fade as the piece starts to feel more and more organic as it is watched.
Ninety Six was part of the 2014 exhibition, Höhenrausch, at OÖ Kulturquartier in Linz, Austria.
