bubble city

3 litres of water with soap can make dreamers in a park literally float.

Media also did in 2004, when a fiction project for Dubai was largely publicized, between irony, wishes, speculation and critique. The Bubble City of Dubai was supposed to float in the air by means of gigantic helium balloons, powered by solar cells and propelled by an anti-gravitational motor. Museums, parks, theme parks and restaurants should fill it up. A reinforced glass dome should cover the enclosed atmosphere.

But the whole bubble just went off. Both the real frenzied buying obsession and the imaginary outer space ambition.

We will better remain in the park.
