Public Participatory installation

I distributed one thousand invitation cards containing green balloons in New York City. During the exhibition period, people were invited come to the galley to add their balloon to the installation. The breath, thoughts or feelings that did not became voice, or a part of the participants’ body were exhibited along with the light and wind installation. Throughout the New Year holidays, the balloons, the breaths and the thoughts of the visitors occupied the space and transformed it into a big wind vessel. Visitors were invited to dive into the space and explore. At the end of the exhibition, we made a party to burst the balloons to return all voice to the atmosphere.
