The Balloon Hat Experience

September 21, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Since 2008 balloon artist Addi Somekh and photographer Charlie Eckert have traveled to 34 countries and shot over 10,000 photographs of people wearing balloon hats. After focusing more on balloon twisting than homework in college Somekh began working professionally as a balloon artist, charging wealthy executives up to $150 an hour to make elaborate balloon hats. He also donated the same skill to shelters for battered women and their children where he realized something: both groups, the rich and the poor, were laughing and enjoying his work in the same way. He had struck upon a democratic, neutralizing and powerful force of entertainment and enrichment, and he hatched a plan with his friend Charles to bring that gift to thousands of people across the world. Learn more on their website (flash). Thanks Stephanie for your submission to the Colossal curatorial contest!

Photographer Molly Strohl has dozens of amazing self-portraits over on Flickr, but these two really caught my attention. Haunting and beautiful work.

Corroded Rings by Yasushi Jona

March 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I am by no means a jewelry aficionado, though I did stay up late as a child watching reruns of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, and I once owned an honest-to-god metal detector that helped be locate enough rusty nails to build a house. I think that gives me enough cred to post these rings by Japanese designer Yasushi Jona. The rings are new, but have been corroded to look as if just scooped up from a shipwreck on the sea floor. One even contains an embedded shotgun shell. (via lost at e minor)
