My 1k balloons arrived. Look how cool they are. On Tuesday August 30th, I will be blowing up 1k balloons and filling the void located at Schleissheimerstrasse and Rottmannstrasse (A corner lot that will be a construction site starting in September 2016.) Blowing up the balloons and placing them in the location will take about four hours but I’m going to start at 1300 so that I have plenty of time before I’ve asked people to come and take a balloon and get their portrait filling the void.
The installation/ art happening is called Fill the void and I’m asking people to come and share how they fill the void. They can interpret that anyway they want. I will photograph them with a balloon and if they share with me how they fill the void, I will photograph them with that notecard too so that I can keep track of the person and the void they fill. I will be videotaping the process and the end result but I will be photographing the people because I’m one person.
The balloons are blue.
Why did I pick blue? The artwork created by HNRX is red and looks kind of like a shrimp so my balloons will be the waves of a sea underneath. Waves of change. Waves of enlightenment. Waves of tired Mingas ready to relax and have a beer.
Blue has so many symbolic meanings which can also be associated with the project but I wanted to let you know that I picked blue because of water and waves and the serene feeling blue gives me. I also want to give Maxvorstadt a big dose of blue colour therapy too.
If you want to join me, I will be blowing up balloons most of the afternoon. If you want to participate, you are welcome to come at 1900 on August 30th to the corner or Schleissheimerstrasse and Rottmannstrasse, Munich Germany (Near Stiglmaierplatz)
