Make It Fly, Not Work.


Participants will use balloons and helium to build a sculpture.

State of mind

This is art and it’s ok to be yourself! Participants should consider building projects in a positive state of mind. If you can't get to a positive state of mind, you should use this project to express yourself.


Participants are asked to recreate an object commonly found in public.This object should be made to scale (life size) if possible. You have the option to work in an abstract way by addressing the space itself, focusing either on the Architecture of the buildings interior or working outside with the natural environment.

Practical things to think about when constructing

Schedule: How much time do I have to complete my objective? Size and material: How many balloons do I have and how many do I need to make the right size sculpture. How big will the sculpture be? Could it be moved through a doorway?

Possible ideas

Bikes, Street signs Cars, Buses, Furniture, An imaginary object

Facilitated by

Carlos Sandoval De LeonCarlos Sandoval De Leon (born Sabinas Hidalgo, Nuevo León 1975) is a contemporary artist. He currently lives and works in New York City. 

Sandoval De Leon explores political, social, and personal narratives through sculpture, photography and site-specific installations. While Sandoval de Leon’s work has been described previously as a process of embedding personal narratives and feelings into material objects he seems just as interested, if not more so, in the richness of the histories embedded in the materials themselves. During his last solo show in spring 2014, he explored closely the idea that materials exist in tandem with discourses and how they participate with and in. 
He received a B.F.A from The Art Institute of Chicago in 1999 and later received an M.F.A. from Columbia University in 2008. Sandoval De Leon Has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
