'Human beings can see nothing around them that is not their own image; everything speaks to them of themselves. Their very landscape is alive' - Guy Debord, 1959.
With the kind permission of The City of London, Hive are pleased to announce the upcoming opening of the new public art installation ' The Black Balloon | Northbank ' by Charlie Hope and Jamie Hamilton.
The Black Balloon is a video and sound-art installation documenting an artistic intervention into London airspace. The piece gives a unique perspective on the city of London which is by turns playful, uplifting and technologically innovative.
Through this we are offered a new perspective on our conventionally structured perception of the built environment of the city as part of Hive's aim to bring alive idle sites and humanise public spaces as a platform for artists and the public to engage.
