Inflatable spaces allow for many collaborative opportunities during planning, construction and implementation.

Many projects (Atomic Temple, Rhizome, Atomic Sky, the Mothership, etc.) were made in collaboration with Leo Villareal. Inflatable environments can be used as big reflectors. They are especially suited for projections and sequenced lighting, Leo's main interest.

Pierre Huyghe contacted AKAirways to help him create a penguin interview station. Pierre then took the inflatable structure to Antartica for the film "The Journey That Wasn't" selected at the 2006 Whitney Biennial.

Christine Ritok started collaborating with AKAirways as Exhibition Manager in 2006. Her self-assigned role is to select and reach out to potential venues, exhibitions and competitions in line with AKAirways philosophy.

Ouroboros was created in collaboration with Teddy Lo. Teddy's LED panels were set inside the inflatable structure.

Granular was made to present video projections by Forward Motion Theater.

Streched Fabric is a project in collaboration with Jamin Murphy who specializes in streched fabric and fluo-deco.

The Mothership is a shell for several installations. It was conceived as a series of interconnected chambers that each hosted one or several installations. More than 40 individuals were involved in bringing the Mothership to life and back.

phaseone.gifCocoon 02 and the Chamber include sensors and control boards designed by Cindy Jeffers and Milena Iossifova. The data gathered from this set-up links to Max patched programmed by Josh Goldberg and used to control video content.

Dancefloor 01 is a shell that hosted DJs, VJs and performers from the Disorient collective.
