Aleksandra Mir has parked her giant inflatable airliner in front of the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, but recently in Zurich it had the chance to pull up to the gate like the big boys.




As Mark said, there's something strangely anthropomorphic about a giant, slightly-cartoony helium aircraft balloon going up, seen here at Flughafen Zürich. I love this almost as much as I love the word flughafen. Bring it to the US! [Aleksandra Mir via Like Cool]

Not this again. An inflatable jumbo jet is NOT art. Nor is a waterfall under a bridge, banners draped in a park, slopping gaudy paint on a cruise ship or giant umbrellas on a hillside (which killed someone). Doing something and proclaiming it art...does not make it art.
