Title: The Intervention of an Inhaler ( humorous art instillation by Bryan Matthew Boutwell ) Description: I saved all my used Asthma inhalers from over the years just incase I wanted to make a sculpture or instillation out of them one day. Well this day came. I wanted to create a humorous art instillation that conveyed a feeling of irony. My own life as a recovering addict also played a part in the inspiration for it.
My Balloon Launch ART GIVE AWAY Project (DESCRIPTION) I decided to design an art project that would appease the hopeful side of my spirit. I’ve always been intrigued by the concept of randomness versus fait. The mystery involved with throwing our selves into the universe and seeing what comes back, and how it comes back, excites the little boy living inside of me. I have a significant obsession with the aesthetics of balloons as well as the mystery of the uncontrolled path in which they travel.
