The Other Volcano – 2011


The aim of interactions designer Nelly Ben Hayoun’s The Other Volcano project was to build a series of semi-domesticated volcanoes that could be housed for several weeks in the living spaces of volunteers. The supranatural volcanoes are large, imposing and extremely inconvenient – erupting dust and gloop in to the living rooms of the volunteers, seemingly at random.

Space In Between presented The Other Volcano on the original carpet taken from Ben Hayoun’s living room, with all the remnants and debris of its unpredictable eruptions. This was shown alongside Home Land: A series of possible experiences – nine newly commissioned drawings.
