Jeff Koons has been into inflatable art since the beginning of his career as an artist. In the video below he speaks about the concept of inflatable objects and their symbolic meaning for life itself. He reveals that the design inspiration for his inflatable pieces stems from the human body and how a breath of air can become a symbol of optimism and future. The Balloon Dog is ‘eternally optimistic’ while simultaneously creating a dialogue between its interior and exterior surroundings through its reflective surfaces.
