Tadas Cerniauskas a Lithuania-based artist who uses the name Tadao Cern has been experimenting with ideas with balloons for some time.
His concept and idea of Black Balloons, is based on experimentation with various gasses, sulfur hexafluoride, carbon dioxide, and helium, to control the weight of the balloons and, through that, manipulate where the balloons stay within a place without any tethers.
The round shape is a familiar often connected with happy and positive ideas: the earth, moon, sun and many other celestial bodies, berries, fruit, the pupils of eyes, and of e, bubbles, balloons, and pebbles. But when represented in black, even the happy balloon takes on a weight and starts to look slightly menacing and dangerous. We think of cannon balls and bullets, heavy rocks and Indiana Jones.
