The Granfalloon is a transparant portal made of 2 large inflatable pillows constructed with scrap plastic material, creating a space which constricts movement.

The word granfalloon comes from K. Vonnegut novel Cat’s Cradle and describes a social condition where an imagined communitiy of people choose or claim to have a shared identity or purpose, but whose mutual association is actually meaningless.Cittadellarte, a granfalloon? By creating physical constraint it allows to create an alternative mental space, and gives the possibility to escape the meaninglessness of a granfalloon.



PubliActie is a test run initiative of a multiphase project for editing, printing and compiling a publication in an open source environment. It introduced alternative operating systems, open source design tools and the ideology of free software . The keywords, links and results of the workshop are published in a small booklet. A piece of cake?

PubliActie is an initiative to bridge the gap between BILUG and the residents. Since 2007 BILUG, Biella Linux Group, has the opportunity to meet every saturday, in a space offered by Cittadellarte.
