Black Balloons: Art Installations by TadaoCern
“Black Balloons” is a series of sculptural installations by Lithuanian artist Tadas Cerniauskas, aka TadaoCern.
“For an extensive amount of time I had an idea to connect two balloons. I found a free minute between the other currently run projects, bought two balloons, and got overwhelmed by the result. It was so unpretentious and so magical at the same time! That opposition created by two very simple and playful objects once again brought a unique childlike sense of discovery.
This experience uncovers a lot and the more one looks at it, the more it becomes true: ‘simplicity is genius’. For the first test I only used two balloons and two different gasses: helium and sulfur hexafluoride – the light and the heavy ones. Later on I worked out how to make the balloons float in the middle of a glass tank without connecting them to anything.”
