While in London last week, I heard about an installation by French photographer Charles Pétillion, which is in Covent Garden.
On Wednesday afternoon, we ventured into Central to see over 100,000 white balloons, each with their own dimensions and lit from within. Entitled Heartbeat, it’s part of a photograph series called Invasions, in which these white balloons occupy unusual spaces.
It is by Péttillion’s design that the slowly pulsating light from within the balloons, which stretch down the length of the Market Building, represents how it is the beating heart of the locality; vibrant and alive with energy!
I can certainly feel this energy; Covent Garden is one of my favourites places in the whole of London!
The installation is on display until the 27th of September, so if you get chance do check it out and let me know what you think!
