French artist Charles Pétillon has filled london’s 19th century covent garden market building with 100,000 giant white balloons. Named ‘Heartbeat’ , the work is pétillon’s first public art installation, and his first ever live work outside of his native country.
Pétillon elaborates, “The balloon invasions I create are metaphors, their goal is to change the way in which see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them. With ‘Heartbeat’ I want to represent the market building as the beating heart of the area – connecting its past with the present day to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life.”

My boy Isaac Colinares aka C4 Sinistah wrote this about the recent tragedy in Newtown, Conn.
I am looking into my heart to find a piece of relevant words that will appear to give voice to what happened in Connecticut; There is nothing to give a parent back after taking the life of there babies the life spirit is attached and sync to that Child from and before Birth; we all have confirmation of loving someone beyond measures of understanding tonight we should all as Human Beings give all we can to those families effected in Sandy Hook Elementary School. A Kindagarten Class! the environment of early innocence a place where you will never break a curse word in, a place where you hold your first shapes and learn friends and key communication skills the little ones, our angels. This is a symbiosis of human failure at it’s highest, may hands from Gods purest take them away into a world with no violence or upkeep may the drifts of time. Never forget these children of Sandy Hook and may the tears of the world go with them into the next.
In peace with harmony ~ Bornvision~
