Magical Bridge Suspended By Three Giant Balloons


Like a dreamy setting straight out of a fairytale, Marseille-based artist Olivier Grossette's delicate bridge floats over a pond, suspended by a trio of surreally inspired giant white balloons. Located in the Japanese Garden at Tatton Park in England for the Tatton Park Biennial, the piece titled Pont de Singe takes an enchanting approach to the exhibition's theme of flight. The sculptural installation has a magical quality about it that feels suited for a Miyazaki film. While it isn't a bridge intended for human use, due to its lightweight and fragile design, it is a spectacle for one's imagination to run wild with.
