I have never encountered this kind of art before – I would say I was blown away by it but it would be a really bad pun (ok that’s never stopped me before..). We’ve all seen balloon art at fairs and as part of children’s entertainment, but this inflatable art is just a little bit different. For a start, the artist Joshua Allen Harris is using garbage bags and tape to make these inflatable statues. Now I don’t know if these garbage bags are new bags or used bags – but the effect is mesmerizing and provides a great deal of entertainment whilst making people smile. The animals have life breathed into them, courtesy of subway exhaust air! My favorite is the Loch Ness monster – which I thought was really comical! What do you think of them? A good idea? a bad idea? – which do you like?
