“Suck the Balls!” is an artfully titled kinetic sculpture by artist Niklas Roy that invites participants to suck plastic balls into a whimsical network of acrylic tubes that stretches several stories up a staircase at the Goethe-Institut in Kraków. The sculpture includes a ball collection pit at the base, 260 feet of tubing, and 10,000 plastic balls. Participants stand in the ball pit and collect balls with a vacuum wand (the sculpture is powered by an ordinary vacuum cleaner). High above them, the balls are collected in a box, which the participant can then open via a cable, dumping a shower of balls on themselves to start the process anew. “Suck the Balls!” will be on display through December 2014.
