I went to check out Charles Petillon's 'Heartbeat' installation in Covent Garden last week, and wow, did this globulous collection of balloons captivate me and everyone around me. 100,000 white balloons of varying sizes are suspended from a steel frame structure and lighting mechanisms pulsate regularly, reflecting the life and vibrancy of the district.
On my visit, I already noticed that several of the balloons had started to deflate and already a surge of sadness crept up on me, knowing that one day this beautiful sculpture will no longer be there, yet the impermanence of the piece is part of the wonder.
Until 27th September.
