Kiss the Sky Inflatable Suit Performance Lawndale Art Center

Jimmy Kuehnle teamed up with Jimmy Budd to exhibit at Lawndale Art Center. In this video, Jimmy gives us Kiss the Sky. From his site, ‘This piece is an inflatable suit with over 104 inverted cone protrusions jutting out in all directions. the rip-stop nylon suit is inflated by an air blower. For this performance I toured the city in search of electricity so I could stay inflated. Many people lent me electricity along my journey.’
