Awesome Balloon Sculpture

Saturday afternoon we were coming back from the Origami Society meeting and saw these large creatures bouncing and jumping in the alley
outside the NavtaSchulz gallery around the corner from our loft. They were having an opening for Jason Hackenwerth the creator of these fantastic balloon creatures. Inside we were greeted by this gaping sucker like mouth.

These sculptures evoke sea creatures, larval insect forms and creatures that fall some where between the plant and animal world. They are massive (10-15 feet) yet light and etherial. Tied to the ceiling and floor with deflated stretched balloons they bob and dance in the air currents. They are transient forms that will wither and die. I absolutely love it!


  1. I love the one with utters. Reminds me of my farm days. How long is the exhibit running at the NavtaSchultz?

  2. Gorgeous. thank you for sharing your world with us. I love the shapes and colors. and the size.

  3. Those are amazing! I wish I could see them in person.

  4. Wow! How beautiful! They must be even more amazing when moving.

  5. Fantastic!! how lucky you were to have seen them when just filled. I am hoping to be able to get to the gallery before they fall all the way to the floor! Thank you for sharing this!
