100,000 Illuminated Suspended Balloons Form a Cloud Inside Covent Garden by Charles Pétillion

French artist and photographer Charles Pétillion produced a stunning installation composed of 100,000 illuminated balloons, which resemble a cumulus cloud inside London’s Covent Garden. The project, titled Heartbeat is a piece part of the upcoming London Design Festival, which follows Pétillion’s signature style of the use of a balloon as an artistic tool. As his first public and largest piece, Heartbeat extends from the South Hall ceiling to the Market Building. The presence of the balloons create a magical and ethereal environment out of a surreal dream.
