Alien-like Sculptures Made from Balloons
The Art section is turning out to be a wonderful collection of creative objects, made from used and sometimes very simple materials.
In today’s post lets see some crazy, whimsical sculptures made from something which kids love, balloons. New York-based artist Jason Hackenwerth, inflates hundreds of balloons, twists and turns them to create alien-like figures, animals or insects.
What are these? Look like some creepy-crawly colorful creatures. Hackenwerth use to blow balloons to make these art pieces, until he started using machines. Hackenwerth spends nearly around US $10,000- $12,000 per year on multi-coloured balloons to create such humongous sculptures. His work is really attractive and eye-catching, how does he twist it, without bursting the balloon? He says its an easy process and he bursts only 10% of the balloons on an average.
The video below shows how Hackenwerth twists and strings together balloons into big flowers.
In one of his sculptures, Hackenwerth had used over 4,000 balloons, and made into a 46-foot long monster. As the balloons deflate slowly, they begin to droop, adding a different dimension to Hackenwerth’s sculpture.
