Bursting star

Synoptic Visionaudial Art Meeting Pécs, Hungary

6 pink helium ­filled balloons
6 grey balloons filled with bright green colour ­pigment
turquoise & silver glitter

I’m kneeling on a street and 6 helium-­filled balloons are tied to my back.
I slowly start to move and straighten my body upwards while my hands can touch the ground.

By the occurring image one might think that these balloons are raising me.
I slowly begin to walk on my fours.
After some steps I stop and free one balloon.
I continue my movements till I stop again to inflate a grey balloon through my legs till it bursts.
Grey balloons leave traces on the ground equally to the ones I leave into the air.
I repeat this rhythm until all balloons are gone and my way becomes untraceable.
