A brief analysis of the physical characteristics of the inflatable object will allow us to outline some of the symbols which it can resume. It is the balloon which confers its visible form to the breath it contains, its appearance of being swollen with vitality.
At each instant every non-rigid container exemplifies, in its form, the dialectical relationship between container and contents.
On the contrary the rigid container is indifferent to its state of repletion. The non-rigid container marks a discontinuity of form at the moment of fullness which charges it with a new meaning.
