The Burst of Pleasure
Student FYP presentation: 'The Burst of Pleasure' is an electronic installation that mainly composed of a big red balloon and a neddle attached on a plain cake in a white room. The balloon will explode by chance to create confetti fireworks. This work aims to transform pressure into pleasure. Audiences' anticipation of excitement and the tension caused by repetitive expansion and contraction bring out the contrast between anxiety and alleviation. The whole project is considered as art therapy, a purgative process.
