Temple of Air
Presented by Balloons, Ink.
Our Universe contains an infinite number of unseen parallel worlds and galaxies. TEMPLE OF AIR lifts the veil of separation, merging worlds of infinite possibility with a beautiful walk-inside sculpture that’s both exhilarating and serene. Made from 100% biodegradable and compostable balloons, TEMPLE OF AIR allows festival-goers to get in touch with their lighter, more spiritual side and experience the ephemeral beauty of large-scale temporary art in a peaceful setting.
This incarnation of the Temple of AIR, inspired by the Taj Mahal, will be framed by (4) 8’ high balloon columns. Upon entering the courtyard of the temple, neophytes are greeted by effervescent Temple Guardians adorned with vibrant balloon costumes, creating the perfect environment and mindset to experience the uplifting power of balloons. Lounge by the scintillating scenery, capture the moment ￼before a surreal backdrop, and play balloon games with gravity-defying friends. Once inside, you’ll be able to participate in the creation of visible prayers. Exhale the breath of life, yell a blessing, or whisper sweet somethings into your own balloon of your choosing and add it to the collaborative intention wall. Prayers will be symbolically released into the ether during a popping ceremony Sunday at Sunrise.
Please note: We do NOT support helium balloon releases. Although our balloons are made from 100% natural latex (NOT plastic) and are biodegradable and compostable, they will not be released into the atmosphere. ALL balloons and balloon fragments will be meticulously collected and transported to a proper recycling facility following the ceremony.
