    I want to see your average clown make one of those! Those are spectacular!

    • haha yea, there was a time when i was able to make a weiner dog.

  • These are just brilliant.
    Thanks for posting.
    I wonder how long such a sculpture lasts, since they will somehow leak air.

  • Wow these are freakin awesome! So organic they’re a cross between a sea creature and a zepplin. NO PINS ALLOWED!!

  • MarlenePB

    these are probably one of the most amazing masterpieces i’ve ever seen. wow.

    this surely beats jeff koonst mettalic ballon dog,

  • I really like Rory’s comparison of the work to a zepplin.
    Its just some type of circus-parasite-zeppline-nightmare thing.
    GREAT!

  • Wow, those are crazy. It must take days to make them and even longer to figure out how to make them. Really interesting sculptures and well chosen theme. What else can we expect to see?

    Disgustingly beautiful

  • i’m assuming he must have created the balloon costume for the cult’s video… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KebXzv1wP4A. otherwise it would be a pretty crazy coincidence.

  • WOW
    I’M IN LOVE

  • Wow, these must be so much work for sculptures that can’t last long at all, right? What an amazing vision. I wonder how he figured out that balloons were his medium?

Lines6

Cape Town-based photographer Johnny Miller reveals distinct lines between rich and poor in a striking (and unsettling) series of photographs. Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored. Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
