Jason Hackenwerth

Beginning as an experiment with twisty balloons on subway station walls, Jason Hackenwerth’s work has evolved into huge organic objects, created using multitudes of balloons

Spending several days on each piece, the sculptures are created as intuitive responses to the spaces they will inhabit, with each installation remaining intact for about eight weeks or so.
