GOLDEN PILLOW


Medium: Gold mylar
Year Completed: 2017
Dimensions: 7’ x 13’ x 2’


The Golden Pillow is a mylar ballon designed to be the focal and iconic centerpiece for the FD17 (Field Day 2017) Pavilion Design Competition event in Dallas, Texas. The Balloon is partially filled with helium to keep it afloat as it interacts with the light and wind to create a dynamic spatial sculpture. The Ballon’s presence changes dramatically between day and night, from shade canopy to wind-powered disco ball.  This simple, yet interactive public installation provides an ever changing, immersive experience. 

Designed in collaboration with Gray Garmon.
