Umpy Lundersphere at Boston Children's Museum'Umpy Lundersphere' created by Claire Ashley is an immersive environment that feels like an imaginary undersea cave or alien planet.

It is made with stitched, painted, inflatable sculptures, hand painted area rugs, bean bags, and exercise balls - or - are they sea creatures or alien beings waiting to hatch? Relax, watch, roll, and listen to the space.

'Claire Ashley’s work encapsulates so much of our imaginative and curious spirit here at Boston Children’s Museum through her larger-than-life inflatable sculptures,' said Faith Johnson, Arts Educator and Program Manager. 'It is a visual and tactile immersive show that invites our visitors to step into a world of wonder experienced through sight, touch, and sound.'

Claire Ashley received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL), and her BFA from Gray’s School of Art (Aberdeen, Scotland). Originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, Ashley is now Chicago based. Currently, she teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the Department of Contemporary Practices, and the Department of Painting and Drawing.
