Black Balloons

An installation exploring the idea of impermanence and duality. Due to entropy the installation has to be carefully maintained and even revived during the period of exhibition.

For an extensive amount of time I had an idea to connect two balloons. I found a free minute between the other currently run projects, bought two balloons, and got overwhelmed by the result.

It was so unpretentious and so magical at the same time! That opposition created by two very simple and playful objects once again brought a unique childlike sense of discovery.

Lower balloons are filled with air so they get carried away by their helium-filled companions.
Formed rhythm stays intact until a wind breeze created by the movement of a first visitor disrupts this utopia.
It’s just a dialog between us and them; here and now.
