This project is based on using inflated balloons inside a flexible, airtight bag to create an
adjustable wall.
These are a few ideas following this concept:

  1. All balloons inflated to create a rectangular wall after deflation.
  2. Lines of inflated balloons to create a moving wall.
  3. Fill each balloon separately to achieve the most individual shape.
  4. The airflow/suction could be regulated by a computer controlled valve system to let the wall move when different pressures are applied.
