London Design Festival: What Happened So Far?

Heartbeat by Charles Pétillon takes place on Covent Garden Market and it is until Sunday 27th September. The French artist has put together 100,000 big white balloons and it looks like a cloud. It is his first public art installation, and we have to say it looks pretty cool. The balloons are illuminated with a gently pulsing white light. If you know the artist, you may know that he already worked with a balloon (Invasions project). Pictures of this project will be shown on the Pizza pop-up gallery.
