Le Ballon Rouge is a video installation I made for a commercial activity in Empoli.
Together with the visual artist Gabriele Rosati we designed the installation: a barrier of white balloons, helium-inflated, float on different levels while a video is projected on them in a seamless loop.
Those objects create a living surface that catches and decomposes the video in a way that resembles Cubism. Once again the point of view is crucial for the different experiences of the observers.
The main theme is childhood although with a pendulum that swings from joy to angst and vice versa.
