This installation is comprised of over 10,000 stick-shaped balloons, the same type that are often carried by sports spectators. The balloons are formed into the shape of a wormhole, and with the natural current of the wind, they tap against each other and create the sound of applause. In addition to expressing the interconnected motions of people living in the same era and the “joy of living in this time together,” the work also embodies a feeling of encouragement for people living in the “present.”
DAISY BALLOON is a balloon unit of worldwide balloon artist Rie Hosokai and art director/graphic designer Takashi Kawada.
Since forming in 2008, they have produced many balloon art works based on the themes of “sense and quality.” Above all, the balloon dresses have fascinated many people through the intricacy of detail that suggests architectural qualities.
