Martin Creed,
Work No. 210, Half the air in a given space, 1999




White balloons

Multiple parts, each balloon 16 in. diameter; overall dimensions variable

For this site-specific installation, Creed fills half the space of a room with balloons, giving tangible form to something that’s usually invisible: the air around you. This lively artwork is meant to be enjoyed as you walk through it and not just viewed from outside. The artist has installed four versions of this work in different neighborhoods throughout the Chicago, choosing a different color balloon for each site to give the installations their own feeling.
