“Larger than life, bright and colorful balloon sculptures will be installed on the site. The sculptures interact playfully with the site utilizing its two-level structure and its relationship to the street. They depict a surreal scenario of creative, playful engagement and interaction.” – Todd Robinson
Australian artist Todd Robinson is known for his works that explore the relationship between gravity and form. In this work titled Oooh Aaah, Robinson creates a bold visual paradox by depicting two oversized balloons as heavy, gravid forms, one sitting within a sunken plaza, the other overhanging a handrail and drooping towards the ground. The work acts as a site marker and playful intervention, interacting with the landscape across two areas, drawing people in and sparking curiosity. Fabricated using Panel beaten stainless steel, automotive putty with bright automotive matte paint finish, UAP collaborated with Robinson to develop and deliver the engaging work.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
