Breath-Taking, Constantly Shifting Balloon-Filled Rooms

New York-raised, Germany-based artist, dancer and choreographer William Forsythe’s Scattered Crowd—a touring audio/visual art installation—is a delightful sensory experience featuring rooms filled with white balloons.

Suspending thousands of white balloons in large, empty rooms, Forsythe invites visitors to interact with the installation by walking through the spaces and touching the balloons.

Designed as “an air-borne landscape of relationship, of distance, of humans and emptiness, of coalescence and decision”, the artwork is accompanied by the music of Ekkehard Ehlers.

This piece will be housed next in the Bockenheimer Deport in Frankfurt, Germany.
