CELEBRATION OF TRANSFORMATION
Wooden Balloon is an exaggeration of the cross-breeding process, transformation of a tree into an object of celebration. Trees are often regarded as objects. They are cross-bred to make them thicker and stronger, affect their growth or even change the color of their leaves. The process of making the Wooden Balloon takes the transformation game to another level and enables one to experiment with pigments made from different parts of a tree. By mixing tree fibres collected in Heiðmörk forest with bioplastics made from natural substances, an entirely new, flexible and easily degradable material is created. Balloon as an object gains additional value due to its personal way of production and natural materials.
