A sense of curiosity and playful spirit of invention drive Tadao Cern’s creative process. Black Balloons came from a sense of discovery of the oppositions that could be created initially by just the simplicity of two balloons in a space, leading the artist to expand the structure into something which interacts with the viewer in many ways.
