Floating Mirror Balloons at Reborn – Art Festival [Japan]

Floating anima 01 is an installation work that depicts life-forms floating about in the balloons, presented by WOW, a visual design studio based in Tokyo. The installation was a project in collaboration with music producer Takeshi Kobayashi and artist unit DAISY BALLOON at ‘Reborn-Art Festival’, which is a comprehensive festival featuring art, music and food in the central areas of Ishinomaki City, Ojika Peninsula.

The exhibition space is filled up with animated mirror balloons. The balloons will float about while showing the reflections of light and objects, creating a poetic atmosphere with the changing of space colour and music.

The ballon artist DAISY BALLOON is a balloon unit of worldwide balloon artist Rie Hosokai and art director/graphic designer Takashi Kawada. They have produced many balloon art works that fascinated people through the intricacy of detail that suggests architectural qualities.
