Bubblegum On The Water

Back in 2009, we expressed our love for inflatable constructions and ‘bubbletecture’. Merijn Hos (presenter at edition #11 of PechaKucha Amsterdam), joined forces with Utrecht-based artist Renée Reijnders to create an installation of 50 floating and colorful balloons for the cultural night 2010 in the Amsterdam suburb of Almere.

LED lights were implanted in the bubblegum-like balloons to create a magical atmosphere on Almere’s recreational lake. The balloons were floating on water but also above it, as if they about to rise into the sky.
