Awesome Balloon Sculpture

Saturday afternoon we were coming back from the Origami Society meeting and saw these large creatures bouncing and jumping in the alley
outside the NavtaSchulz gallery around the corner from our loft. They were having an opening for Jason Hackenwerth the creator of these fantastic balloon creatures. Inside we were greeted by this gaping sucker like mouth.

These sculptures evoke sea creatures, larval insect forms and creatures that fall some where between the plant and animal world. They are massive (10-15 feet) yet light and etherial. Tied to the ceiling and floor with deflated stretched balloons they bob and dance in the air currents. They are transient forms that will wither and die. I absolutely love it!
