Breathtaking Rooms Filled with Thousands of Balloons


Scattered Crowd is a magnificent spacial installation featuring thousands of balloons by German choreographer William Forsythe. The multi-disciplined artist forces visitors to his site-specific installation to not only take in the gorgeous, magical effect of the piece, but to also interact with the space.

Walking through a maze of dreamy white balloons varying in size and opacity, one can't help but become part of the piece in an unusual dance whose choreography lies in the audience's own power. Whether they choose to physically touch or delicately maneuver around each suspended balloon is entirely up to them. Forsythe's intention with the piece is to reflect human emotion and decision. The abstract representation is, in fact, a catalyst in an interesting performance put on by visitors themselves.
