French artist Charles Pétillon has installed a giant cloud of balloons under the roof of the 19th-century Market Building in London's Covent Garden.

Read more about the installation in Dezeens article here. Personally though, I love the texture, the play of light across the space, dispersed by layers of semi transparent rubber. 

evoking memories of clouds, cartoon like in their form and colour.

The varying size of balloons each gives a different level of diffusion and subsequent light. The individual forms become as one in an almost magical way.
