So Whimsical: Bridge Suspended From Helium Balloons

February 13, 2013


This is Pont de Singe, an installation art piece by Olivier Grossetête. It consists of a little bridge being suspended over a pond by helium balloons. It's not actually functional though, you'd wind up in the drink if you tried to cross it. Unless -- UNLESS -- you're a cat. Are you a cat? "Meow." I knew it! *petting* Such a pwetty, pwetty kitty! "I'm not actually a cat, GW." Well this is embarrassing. FOR YOU. What kind of sicko pretends to be a cat just so I'll pet them? If I catch you licking yourself you're going outside.

Hit the jump for a couple more pictures.



Thanks to chichi, who actually IS a kitty. Whoa! And you can computer?

    as far as art goes, I get what he's trying to accomplish...but what a half assed effort. The ends of the bridge aren't connected to land, it's like he TRIED to simulate a bridge, but it didnt' work out and just said "Fuck it, just take some pictures before the thing sinks completely"

    It would be pretty cool if it had enough balloons to be weight bearing and was, you know, attached to something. Maybe someone else will do it properly.

    First problem is the bridge seems to come out of the water and go back into the water. Even if it stayed up you would be walking though the pond to get on the bridge.

    I'd place bait at the middle of the bridge, then shoot the balloons when an animal goes for it
    ...... just sayin

    Im sorry but that is 1 ugly, unstable, uneven, non-load bearing bridge... but its art

  • Steven Sanchez

    for someone with the username "Lee Tan", it's ugly, unstable, uneven, and non-load bearing... but I guess you can call it art...

    I think he's saying you should be better looking, flatter, and bear heavy loads.

    and this is why we're running out of helium? DAMNIT!
