The Balloon Hat Experience

Sometimes it’s hard to find much to smile about. Economic downturn, extortionate education costs and global warming (you’d forgotten about global warming hadn’t you) all threaten to warp your face into the grimmest of frowns. But what if there was a device that could instantly bring a smile to your face – like a hat crafted from balloons? Artists Addi Somekh and Charlie Eckert take the simple art of balloon twisting and elevate it to new heights with the Balloon Hat Experience; creating novelty rubber headgear around the world with the humble intention of making people smile. Enjoy the pictures – everything’s going to be alright.
