The Great Inflate

The Great Inflate The Great Inflate, 2019, video formatted for unique 80-foot high video marquee, 30 seconds

Collaboration with Ellen Wetmore. As an artist couple, we often find our heads filling up with our own ideas, our daily concerns, our neuroses, our current or next project, or what to make for dinner. What will happen with our balloon heads? Will they float away, inflate to the breaking point, or expand to fill all available space? With so much air bouncing around, how do we interact with one another, our kids, friends, colleagues, or other balloon people?

Created for the 28th round of Art on the Marquee (the Curated Round, featuring artist couples) at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, 415 Summer St., Boston
