British artists Ken and Mary Turner founded Action Space in 1968 during a fertile period of new and expanded arts practices. Their inflatable public works of art imaginatively mobilised ideas of participation, education, public space and play. The delight that their sculptures inspired was captured by the artists on Super Eight film. In this new film Huw Wahl, who is the Turner’s son, contrasts the original footage with the making and testing of a new inflatable sculpture in a physical and reflexive process that raises questions about community, family and the history of radical ideas.
