Working in conjunction with Director X, Skyscape Balloons brought one element of a three-artist exhibition in Toronto, Canada, into clear visualization. According to Michael Prokopow, co-curator of the city-produced event called Oblivion, each phase of the transformation was designed to help participants explore a state of nothingness / state of being and the process of going from something to nothing.

Skyscape Balloons Owner Dave Monson explains, "The 40-foot, outdoor inflatable sphere was used as part of Director X's art installation 'Death of the Sun' at Nathan Philips Square. It was the main attraction for an all-night contemporary art event, Nuit Blanche Toronto 2016."

Through the use of external video projectors, onlookers were able to experience a simulation of the death of the sun as it burned glowing hot, phased gradually into a cool blue, and then a lifeless, ashen gray as it moved into oblivion.

"Just wanted to say how much we LOVE our inflatables.  We tested them in our lobby where they were, of course, an instant hit for school group photos. Our leadership was quite pleased with the durability and the realism."

"Landmark created two inflatable Truman the Tigers for us, and they were incredibly easy to work with, as well as very affordable."
