Largest 3D Balloon Sculpture @ Balloonbots (Marina Square)

balloon sculpture
This sculpture is the largest 3D Robot Balloon that measures 18m by 11m, made up completely of balloons! In fact a total of 65,000 inflated balloons of various colors and combinations were used, and it was designed by 50 balloon artists from countries such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore; an official attempt to break the current Guinness World Records for the largest balloon sculpture.

Last Friday, when I was on my way to meet up with friends at Marina Square to catch the movie, John Carter, I noticed a couple of children happily walking past me with balloon creations in their hands (e.g. a lollipop, sword and hat etc…). As I approached the atrium I saw the massive balloon sculpture, whose name is apparently Sentinel, and was about 2 stories high! Mystery solved as to how the children got there balloon creations. There was an ongoing balloon workshop for children (which ended on Sunday -18 March 2012) and people happily taking photos of and posing with Sentinel. It was a furor of activity with the ongoing balloon workshop and people taking photos from almost every angle.

Of course, after the movie I couldn’t help myself and started taking a few photos of this massive balloon sculpture too. After all, it is not very often you get to meet such a massive balloon sculpture on a casual night out. ^^

  1. Wow, this is some undertaking and the children must have enjoyed it. It's the sort of thing they love to do in the Far East. I wish we had more interest in this here in the West! What fun! Just keep away from sharp pointed sticks!

    1. Having used 65,000 inflated balloons of various colors and combinations till it formed a balloon sculpture 18m by 11m must have been hard work too! It certainly grab the attention of all the passers-by. As for the children (at least those that I saw), were pretty enthralled with the balloon workshop and having their own balloon creation. ^^

  2. Wow! I wonder who had to blow up all those balloons. I've never seen a balloon sculpture before, what a neat idea. I bet this impressed so many young kids, too.

    1. The balloons were must probably blown using a machine and at 18m by 11m, the balloon sculpture was pretty impressive.

  3. That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I would have loved to be there in person. I bet the kids that participated in the workshop had so much fun!
