For 5 days only Luis Pons’ Fabulous Floating Villa, an inflatable installation, will be moored for viewing during Art Basel Miami. The inflatable pavilion was designed by the Miami-based, Venezuelan-born architect in response to the current real estate boom in Miami where architectural fantasy has given way to predictable McMansions and uninspired excess. The 30x30x20 foot Fabulous Floating Villa is lodged on a flatbed barge, kept inflated by a generator and fully illuminated so as to be visible all day long. Sightings from today through December 4th.
Artist: Luis Pons
