Clear

balloons

Since Christmas they have lived with us,
guileless and clear,
oval soul-animals,
taking up half the space,
moving and rubbing on the silk
...such queer moons we live with
Balloons, Sylvia Plath

I'm kind of over balloons as props, but still like these translucent versions, and especially this installation merging art and environmentalism.
