Bubble wrap’s purpose is to protect fragile objects. The act of bubble wrapping a whole public space, including every object and detail in it, speaks to the absurdity of the impossible level of protection we ask for ourselves. While wrapping, natural impulse is to press the little bubble to experience the sound of it bursting. This sound represents the object of our fears (bombs) and what we want to find protection from. As bubble wrap purports to provide protection, the absurd contrast in the material is evident in the actions we take when presented with it.
