BALLOON CHAINLANDMARKS & INSTALLATIONS
ART WORK/PROJECT NAME: BALLOON CHAIN
A signature sight at the Coachella and Burning Man festivals over the past decade, and a fan-favourite at Clockenflap since 2017, this gigantic and constantly changing sculpture made of helium-filled balloons will be seen soaring high over Central Harbourfront throughout the festival. What’s more, fans can be part of the attraction by taking a turn to hold on to the end of the Balloon Chain!
ABOUT THE ARTIST: ROBERT BOSE
Balloon Chain, by Robert Bose, is a large scale ephemeral kinetic sculpture made up of multiple expansive strands of helium-filled balloons making the open sky a canvas.
A single chain can reach over a half a mile (800 meters) into the atmosphere. It is visible far and wide, both during the day and at night with the use of custom built LED lighting.
The chain is always hand held which not only allows the art to be mobile, but makes it interactive for all to participate.
Balloon Chain has been displayed at events and festivals around the world.
