Today I received an eagerly awaited parcel in the post from Berlin- a WHITE BALLOON!
Even more interesting, is it is a Blown Up Balloon.
Strange you may ask, but I am taking part in an Art Project with a difference and it is the brainchild of Artist Sefan Riebel, Berlin.
"Beingeverywhere" is a space utopian project based on his performative and sculptural work.
Since February 2007, Stefan has filled white ballons with his breath and sent them to people all around the WORLD!
They, in turn, destroy these balloons in a place and way they choose, and set Stefans breath free- so- for a short time, a part of Stefan will be present in those surroundings.
The person who receives the balloon makes and submits a picture that represents the place they are in. I applied and now proudly be submitting mine for Ireland- Check it out- http://www.beingeverywhere.net/beingeverywhere/bpa/bpa.html
I think its a great project;
"Best Picture Award" 25 Countries are Participating, or , with Ireland, now 26!
The image of where and how I would release Stefan's breath came to mind almost immediately when I was presented with this project. I have two, no three possibilities so far, its just a matter of which one!
Watch this space, I will be opening the box and making my contribution tio BEINGEVERYWHERE.
(My Grandaughter is eager too!)
