I love Zimoun! I’ve posted the Swiss artist’s work several times now (see them all here), but this recent work is by far his most ambitious. He has ditched the cardboard boxes for the time being and installed his first-ever permanent work inside of a giant tank in Dottikon, Switzerland. 329 cotton balls attached to little motors bounce endlessly inside the space.

Watch the video below! My favourite part is when it cuts to the silence outside. I really want to visit this in person one day. Who wants to join me?

    Really want to go!

  • What an impressive and immense project. It really didn’t set in until I watched the video and after I did all I want to do now is go there and just lie on the floor to really take it all in. Let’s go!!!
