Illuminarus Giganteus – Artist: Serpico

The purpose of this project is to design a visually interesting piece that will be seen for miles. I was inspired by a piece that I saw at BM 2010. The piece is a simple string of illuminated helium filled balloons that is planned to reach 120 feet high. A string of 20+ helium filled balloons spaced 6 feet apart. This should reach 120+ feet in the air.

Interactivity: This will be a visual beacon for all event participants. It could be moved to any location. It will also hopefully sway back and forth with a light wind.
