ART·spiration: Charles Pétillon's heartbeat

Are you in London? Team EFA wishes we were!

French artist and photographer Charles Pétillon has just constructed a cumulus cloud made up of 100,000 white balloons illuminated from the inside at London’s Covent Garden, and the result is absolutely stunning. 

The balloons create a stunning landscape incorporating gently pulses of white light as it stretches through the building for a total length of 54 meters. Titled ‘Heartbeat,’ the new installation is his largest to date and his first public art piece.

The installation will be on view through September 27, 2015. Check out an interview with Pétillon here.

What a fantastic example of the way in which art can affect the space it is housed within.
