New York artist Kurt Perschke took his famous massive inflatable RedBall Project to 20 sites in the UK this summer. The public art project was a big hit, turning heads and generating a lot of social media interaction on platforms like Flickr and Instagram.

Filmmaker Danny Cooke was on hand throughout the RedBall Project tour to document the stops. The film, a short documentary that makes use of many time lapse segments (best viewed on a big screen,) is informative and thought provoking. Perschke explains that that is just what the RedBall Project is meant to do -- provoke thought. Where would you put the ball? How did it get there? Why is it there? All these questions are brought about by the ball, and all these questions are examples of how the public is interacting with the public art project.
