Balluminescence - Lights, Balloons, Jellyfish! was commissioned by Science Chicago and was created for the program's finale signature event - LabFest! Millennium Park. An interactive installation, Balluminescence engaged participants in the process of creating art inspired by science. A team of balloon artists taught LabFest! attendants how to create simple balloon shapes, which were then added to one of three balloon jellyfish costumes. Through the activity, participants learned about air pressure and the biology of jellyfish.
Willy got an undergrad degree in physics while performing part-time in a circus. How awesome is that?
Thanks to Tyler for the heads-up.
Oh that is sooooo becoming an ongoing project for my little boys' birthdays. I would never have thought of making jellyfish out of balloons! That's too cool!
