These beautiful black and white images of balloon vases are a collaboration between artists Shun Kawakami, balloon artist Daisy Ballon, calligrapher Gen Miyamura and photographer Yuu Kawakami.

These fascinating balloon vases remind one of Oriental scrolls and traditional Asian art but also look like exploding, motion-capture images. The images were created for an exhibition in Tokyo called, “composition of knowledge and feeling.”

Implications - Explosive (in a descriptive and literal sense) artworks are always a top seller for artists and designers. There are consumers who need to see vibrancy and an element of destruction or chaos in order to truly be moved by an image. Brands need to be willing to go beyond the convention of harmony and provide the exciting/entertaining element of disarray that can be honestly captivating for their target demographic.
