Covent Garden Market has been filled with 100,000 white glowing balloons.
French artist Charles Petillon has installed this piece of art, called Heartbeat, across the ceiling of one of London’s most thriving tourist areas.
The sculpture measures up to 54 metres in length and 12 metres wide, with white lights pulsating within the installation representing the ‘heartbeat’ of the building itself and its history.
Petillon described the piece as a ‘fragile composition that creates a floating cloud above the energy of the market’.
Visitors have until the 27th September to experience Heartbeat for themselves; take a closer look here and tell us if you’ll be visiting.
