    The picture featuring a woman crossing arms, standing in front of the huge yellow balloon, absolutely needs an Unhappy Hipsters’ caption.

    It’s quite impressive the contradiction between the balloons and a symbol of violence.
    And somebody spend hours mounting all these balloons so neatly :)

    I imagine the movement of the balloons in real life would be quite amazing. They intrude upon the space while maintaining that light and delicate feeling.

    Reminds me of the inflatable trash bag sculptures in New York, funny how progress in art is relative to when you see it–not when it’s made.
