Green Bubble, 1969
In the mid-sixties, before his work turned towards installation and a critical reflection on power and the collective memory, Francesc Torres made a series of minimalist works based on basic forms and natural elements. His inflatable structures belong in this context. On one occasion, he submitted a bubble full of air that had turned slightly green to the effects of the waves. On another, he filled a large inflatable structure with fog. In both these works, elements such as gravity, sea water and air interact with the pieces according to the logic of the laws of nature.
