Cherry Blossom Zorb
Interactive balloon installation at CherryBlastIV, a huge, awesome warehouse party that's a featured part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. The installation was originally inspired by snow globes, cherry blossom flowers, and my love of 10ft diameter orbs, but really, it was just an excuse to have fun with the biggest gosh darn balloon-thing ever. The zorb held between 100 - 200 balloons and one weather balloon and most certainly brought out the inner kid in, well, everyone.

Beneath, you'll see one tiny wristbanded arm: That's me, hanging onto the handle, surfing the zorb, and (with help) trying to keep us juuuust on the right side of chaos. Amazing, amazing, amazing experience.
