Stunning Installation of 100,000 Illuminated Balloons in Covent Garden

Heartbeat in Covent Garden

French artist Charles Pétillon has created a stunning installation “Heartbeat” that features an giant cloud of 100,000 white balloons in Covent Garden in London.

Weaving its way through the South Hall of the Grade II listed Market Building, Heartbeat stretches 54 metres in length and 12 metres in width, and incorporates gentle pulsating white light to symbolise the beating of a heart and reflect the history, energy and dynamism of the district.

This complex structure represents Charles’ largest and most ambitious project to date and will run from 27th August until 27th September. Watch the video below.
