Helium

     

     Helium presents a balloon attached to a television screen; the screen displays a static, unfluctuating moment of tension as the balloon slowly deflates and buffets with the movement of air in the space. As the video loops, the balloon acts both as a timekeeper and as a gauge of the viewer’s emotional register. Once the balloon has fully deflated, it remains on the floor beneath the screen as the video loops on.
