Carpathian Mountain, Ukraine

The work consists of several dozens of helium-filled white balloons of different sizes. Each balloon is connected with an invisible nylon fishing line to a plummet placed at the bottom of the mountain lake. As the wind blows, every balloon oscillates like an inverted pendulum. The frequency of oscillation depends on the length of the thread connecting a balloon with a plummet. The

trembling of numerous white balloons reflected in the surface of the lake creates a meditative scene with the mountain landscape in the background.


The work was made during the Fantazery audiovisual festival on Mount Dragobrat in the Carpathians in March 2019.
