David Rickard's installation, Test Flights at The Economist Plaza.
Architect/ artist Rickard contributed to last year's London Festival of Architecture with his exhausting project, Exhaust. He found himself exhaling into silver foil balloons via a respiratory mask for 24 hours (yes, hours) to bring to our attention the need for clean, fresh air within buildings and the environment as a whole. The balloons were exhibited up and down the Goethe-Institut's spiral stairwell.
