‘Interstitial Space' installation from Soo Sunny Park (2000)
Using the body measurement of the U.S. male (according to the survey of yr.1999) an Average Joe’s body volume is calculated (which is equal to 2.5 of max. blown 12” clear balloons). The number is then compared and equally paired with the total sum of the interstitial space (V) between the clear balloons in the steel structure. This steel “hallway” is constructed with the architectural standard measurements for doors (3.5’x7’) and hallways (minimum 5’ in width), which are generated by the ergonomics that also apply Average Joe’s body measurements. As a participant walks through the compressed steel hallway, his body causes the balloons to erupt. Displacement occurs although the calculated number of space between the balloons/unoccupied space is much greater than the volume of a person. The counted number of erupted balloons, replenished with the air from the participant’s body, is five times greater than the volume of his body; empirical re-measurement of his body takes place again.

In Cars 2 one of the racecars mentions their mother. And then the racecar waves to his mother in the audience. One automobile birthed another automobile.
When Mater tries to convince a car that he is not a spy, he says “I’m not a spy. my specialty is towing and salvage”. The car responds by saying “Right. and mine is developing iPhone apps” before winking. Not only is this a poorly placed pop cultural reference, but they have iPhones in this world. Smartphones. Cars can hold mobile phones and use them and use their touch screen for various uses.
In Cars 2 there is a Pope. The pope is a car in a pope hat. he rides around in a Popemobile. A CAr is riding in another car. They make reference to the Popemobile. “Is the Popemobile Catholic?”, Mater says as a “Well duhhh” moment, much like our saying, “Is the Pope catholic?”. presumably this means the Popemobile is employed and must be specifically Catholic in order to be the chauffeur and carrier to the regular pope. Also, Catholicism is in this Universe. This means that there must have been an actual Jesus Christ car. Also they mention at one point that gasoline is a “Fossil fuel. As in dead dinosaurs!” so there must have been dinosaurs at one point in the Cars universe but were they actual dinosaurs or car dinosaurs how did this civilsation start how did the
