Florida-based artist Jason Hackenwerth explores what he describes as “universal biology”—the curling, amorphous structures shared by nearly all living things. He twists and weaves hundreds of elongated party balloons in elaborate patterns. The enormous finished sculptures mimic patterns from nature, yet are unlike any known organism. Hackenwerth avoids the bright colors normally associated with balloon animals, favoring organic colors. Bright greens and yellows give way to dark browns and reds, symbolizing growth and decay.
