Bubbles are beautiful and make people happy, the small and the big people. We forget about time, dive into the wafting universe of a giant soap bubble tube and are reminded of how simple life can be. Since 2015 soap bubble artist Miss Bubbles has been fascinated by soap bubbles as a visual art, having performed on festivals and in street shows in many different countries including Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, South Korea, Poland, Portugal, Scotland, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, Canada and the US.
In late 2013, before Miss Bubbles even knew giant soap bubbles even existed, she had had a dream at night. In her dream, Miss Bubbles made big soap bubbles. She could touch their membrane without breaking them, turn them around, make their membrane more dense and form toys out of them.
This was one of the most beautiful dreams Miss Bubbles has ever had. A couple weeks later a friend wrote her saying: “Hey, I’m gonna visit you next week.” “Great!” She said. “Will be nice to see you again. What are you up to these days?” He replied: “I make bubbles.” Yes! Happy conglomeration of events, happy Miss Bubbles. Once she has seen the first big bubble in real life, Miss Bubbles immediately fell in love with bubbles and her passion for soap bubble art was born – thanks to her friend.
Ever since then Miss Bubbles has experimented with different ingredients and developed her own bubble solution, being inspired by the aim to create a soap bubble as huge as possible. By now, the giant soap bubble tubes gain a length bigger than 10 meters, with the biggest bubble being over 25 meters long. The largest free-floating bubble had a diameter of approximately 5 meters, the largest open bubble a diameter of over 6 meters. And surely they can get even bigger. By 2016 Miss Bubbles’ soap bubble show was ready for street and festival performances.
Today Miss Bubbles still builds new bubble equipment and explores new ideas to enhance the soap bubble artistry both outdoor and indoor. The bubble show being enriched by techniques with smoke and fire. Although different weather conditions have some influence on soap bubble art when performed on the street, the solution has survived so far a large variety of climates. The wind can be a challenge, nevertheless is a great assistant – when a good technique is used.
“Every time I start a soap bubble street performance, it feels like the very first time I’ve seen a soap bubble“.
