The inflatable Man by irishcompass The inflatable Man by irishcompass
:evileye: I solemnly swear I am up to no good :giggle:

A fellow Deviant :iconbrendan-harkins: and I were inspired by the work of Street Artist Joshua Allen Harris. He creates sculptures out of trash bags and duct tape, then attaches them to vents. When the pieces are not inflated it looks like trash, but when the wind blows you get a surprise!

Here is a clip of our first try at doing these inflatable sculptures : [link]

And here is a clip of Joshua Allen Harris's work : [link]

Looks like this dude has a thing for the building :lol:

Nice concept. Great idea by the artist.

:rofl:

I thought the idea was great too. I'd love to be able to get the same kind of detail that the artist does. Maybe on the second go we'll give it a try ;)

Maybe moving in closer now that you have the establishing shot. Maybe a before and after. Inflated and deflated. It's not an easy subject to photograph...it's one of those "you had to be there" type of things.

I'll do that next time :) The inflatable man was taken down the next day :shrug: I guess the folks didn't like it too much.

Well I was just thinking perhaps he violated (pun intended) building codes...after all, vents where made to vent. They were not designed to have deflated men jump onto them, get aroused and then inflate. :lol:
