One of the Florence’s water works, “Balloon DNA” has been published for an article in the first issue of ADT magazine. It was used to illustrate how to be creative at the time of this economic crisis. The magazine is about art, culture, trend, sports, etc., and a quarterly publication.
It is in French, and so I have no idea what this ad is about…
By the way, there is an interesting story behind this picture.
This Balloon series photos were shot at a swimming pool of Florence’s friend’s. Florence came up with this idea, and she bought a bunch of balloons and Florence and her friend blew up 70-80 balloons manually (using their mouths and lung power). I bet their cheeks must have hurt after blowing up so many balloons. Then they put all the balloons in the pool as Florence wanted. Everything was fine up to this point, as far as I was concerned. Then disaster hit.
Some balloons ran away from the pool and flown off all over the yard!
Florence and I chased after them and tried to rescue them, but unfortunately some balloons killed themselves by landing on stingy rose bushes. Sometimes we could hear the sound of pop, but could not see them. Pop… Pop… Pop… (just like a bag of popcorn is nearly done in a microwave).
We finally found a way to keep them together in the swimming pool, but the story did not end here. Those balloons did not want to stay together like Florence wanted! No wonder some of them ran away. They must have had a huge disagreement among them. Florence wanted them at one corner of the pool, but they didn’t listen to her. Boy, weren’t they obedient! I, as Florence’s assistant had to talk some sense into them and beg them.
“Everyone, come this way. Good. That’s it. A little bit closer. Yes. You can do it. No, no, no, no, not that way. Here, this way. You are doing great. Wonderful. Smile, everyone. PLEEEASE!”
Then after several shots, some of them started to get tired. I couldn’t blame them because they had been in the water for a long time. But I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw some of them just quit working by letting the air out of their body!!!
What a crowd…
