Artist makes monsters out of balloons

New York artist Jason Hackenwerth makes quite an impressive array of creatures using that staple material of clowns, the venerable party balloon. He makes both static sculptures and wearable ones. How long does it take to make such things? The time lapse video above documents 8 hours of work to make one creature, minus some amount of dancing around. Neat stuff!

If you happen to be in Grand Rapids, MI, in the next few weeks, you should definitely check out his work at the UICA.
