Pisces / Jason Hackenwerth

Behold Pisces, an enormous worm-like sculpture made of 10,000+ balloons. The piece, created by the New York-based artist Jason Hackenwerth, was unveiled at the National Museum of Scotland during the recent Edinburgh International Science Festival. According to the site Colossal, the artwork was inspired by the Zodiac sign Pisces, which itself was inspired by the story of Aphrodite and Eros escaping the fearsome monster Typhon by transforming into a tightly woven spiral of two fish. It reportedly took a small team six days to blow up the balloons for Hackenwerth’s installation — via Architizer Blog » A Giant Worm Made Of 10,000 Interlocking Balloons
