Pressure the university to sign the open covid pledge
A giant inflatable syringe was installed on the grounds of Melbourne University
It made us aware of the impact of a novel, physical object in a public space.
Australia has many ‘giant’ objects (Giant Prawn, Giant Pineapple etc) in prime tourist locations and this study of the vernacular led to the idea of the giant syringe.
A set of instructions exists on how to make this work
Reflections from Greg Giannis
If someone else were going to make/use/do something like this, what advice would you give them?
Look at the available resources and get an idea of how you will approach the making of the inflatable. Experiment with a smaller prototype to get a feel for the materials and process, and to help decide how to proceed. Have fun!!!
