The Half the Air in a Given Space art installation will bring to mind the ball pit in McDonald’s play area for children. Except that this interactive installation has been created with adults in mind. In place of the colorful plastic balls, the exhibit is comprised of thousands of balloons, all of the same color. The artist writes, “It is important to me that the situation is normal, that, as usual, the space is full of air; it’s just that half of it [is] inside the balloons.”

First created in 1998 by British artist Martin Creed, the Half the Air in a Given Space art installation has since been done over and over again to the delight of many. Evoking thoughts of celebrations and childhood, it is a simple show with a huge emotional impact.
