A room filled with balloons

I remember with so much joy the experience of being in a room filled with balloons a few years ago while I was preparing an event for Children’s Day. I just sat there looking at those flying, deliciously coloured balloons trying to hold myself from walking through them like a kid. I never did it, just thought it was too childish. But I’m still drawn to that bubbly feeling which I refused myself.

British artist Martin Creed appears to have fulfilled that calling and decided to encourage other people to do it as well. Martin Creed created a balloon installation called: ‘Half the air in a given space’, where people can get lost in a room filled with balloons. The artist fills half the space of a room with balloons, giving tangible form to something that’s invisible, air.

The installation was first diplayed in 1998 and it has been presented in different museums ever since.
