Wonderfully Weird Balloon Art

JasonHackenwerth<At first glance, you may think you’ve come across a photograph still from a science fiction movie filled with creatures from planets light years away but take a closer look and you are indeed looking at balloons painstakingly put together in beautiful way.

New York based artist Jason Hackenwerth has chosen the medium of balloons to show what he feels conveys the “combination of spirituality and sexuality.” But why use something so fragile as this thin plastic and not a more permanent form like stone?

“I’m filling them. The air inside is slipping out. It’s a great metaphor for our own lives.” The works sag with gravity over time, shrinking as they age, “a perfect combination of sadness and joy.”

Flashback Friday! (Moments In Love-Art Of Noise)

I freakin’ found it! I couldn’t remember the name of this song of the group for the life of me. I didn’t have much to go on besides a haunting beat and a music video involving ice skating, masks, and an eerie undertone. Well, after much searching the mystery is solved. It was Moments in Love by the Art of Noise from 1983.

Doesn’t it seem like the 80’s were full of music videos and movies involving European aristocrat balls and the 16th / 17th centuries all together?
