Artist Jason Hackenwerth transforms common materials into a spectacle to be experienced. His medium of choice is the latex balloon, inflating hundreds at a time and stringing them together in unusual forms and pre-determined color patterns to create sculptures resembling animals, insects, aliens, and other colorful imaginative items.
Animal Soul sculptures tower over the viewers at 20 to 30 feet high each, and transform the waterfront into a larger-than-life, glowing sculpture garden. Hackenwerth will also create wearable sculptures made entirely of sewn balloons that come to life when donned by dancers.
