Join Visiting Kit Huntington for a two-part program that blends art and science into hands-on bubble fun. First, create art in motion by making your own giant bubbles. Learn some fun facts about the science of a soap bubble, and roll up your sleeves to experiment with manipulating soap films and discover all kinds of fun things you can do with bubbles. Then, transfer the momentary beauty of bubbles to paper by learning to make bubble prints. Use dyed solution to blow bubbles onto paper and create a colorful work of bubble art to take home with you.
About Kit Huntington
Kit Huntington is a science educator/performance artist and founder of Bubbleution. She began her venture in crowd source participation art in Oakland, California with her HeartWork project in 2015 and a few years later, she started the on-going project that is now known as Bubbleution.
Bubbleution began as a spur-of-the-moment experiment in making giant bubbles, but after seeing people’s reaction to the bubbles, the project quickly took on a life of it’s own. The concept behind Bubbleution is based on the idea that people of all ages and backgrounds are universally drawn to bubbles, as well as instinctually driven to chase one down and pop it.
It’s something so simple, and yet so magical—this unspoken, spontaneous community that is created when a bunch of strangers all pause their day and experience a few moments of unexpected joy together. Inspired by this phenomenon, Kit set out to use giant bubbles to create and spread that positive energy as often as she could, and so, just like that, Bubbleution was born.
