Creating change [06-12]
Jonas Liveröd – Expanding Pressure, balloon, 2007
This Swedish artist made a 4m wide balloon with a picture of one of his country’s last remaining primeval forests. The balloon is created so that it appears to be under tension from both the inside and the outside. This effect represents the pressure that we are putting on the environment and how this is adding to climate change.
