Art Description

Printmaking: Photo on Paper.

"Black Balloons" 2016, Project Sketch for the Installation.

Giclée Fine Art Print on Photo RAG 308 Archival Paper.


Every single day I spend at my studio and my creative process resembles playing. Everything I create comes out of curiosity. The same happened with a project 'Black Balloons'.

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.

This experience uncovers a lot and the more one looks at it, the more it becomes true: "simplicity is a genius".

For the first test, I only used two balloons and two different gasses: helium and sulfur hexafluoride - the light and the heavy ones. Later on, I worked out how to make the balloons float in the middle of a glass tank without connecting them to anything.

It's a never-ending story of an explorer...

Furthermore, they interact with the spectator in so many ways - one can only imagine how a sculpture made out of 400 balloons would react to a wind that one creates just by walking by.

Materials: rubber, plastic, sulfur hexafluoride, carbon dioxide, helium, metal
