Unique Inflatable Artwork is Turning Heads… Literally

Artist Jeffrey Einhorn Deflates his Inflatable Artwork… On Purpose

Typically, when we are commissioned to create inflatable artwork, the project is designed to remain inflated. However, Jeffrey Einhorn, a New York artist, asked us to design an inflatable head that would gradually deflate over time. Why? To make a point via his exhibition at The Warehouse Gallery.

 According to Jeffrey, "The piece is supposed to be durational and meant to change over time. It's about the deflation process, and what it can physically do to the body. It was important to me, as an artist, that the viewer could participate, and watch the decline of the work."

Balloons such as these would normally be considered cold-air inflatables. However, this exhibit required a bit of rethinking in order to make it deflate slowly and progressively. The end result is a shell stuffed with large, latex balloons that (like any other balloons) gradually lose air. As they leak, the overall piece begins to shrink and change. Just the effect the artist was after for his exhibit.

We love the truly unusual ways inflatables are being used these days. We've come a long way from the time of inflatables performing strictly as marketing tools. It's exciting to watch them adapt and morph into so many roles.

“[The inflatable arch] created a wonderful backdrop to brand our events, capture our sponsors in the photos used by the participants, and made it easy to travel down the coast of California without taking up too much space on our trucks.”

- Amy Daugherty, California Coast Classic

"[There was] fun, excitement, and encouragement for everyone to actually walk under/through [the arch] and it worked.  We have cheerleaders and small children at the finish line by the arch handing out stickers, saying ‘I did it.’ Before we had the arch, [people] would straggle in anywhere."
