Jason Hackenworth is one of those artists that make you smile, and say to yourself, "How did he come up with that?". He is a sculptor of balloons, and not your typical children's birthday party balloons either. He creates what he calls the "Megamite" which he claims to be an anemone, a creature from the deepest reaches of your id. Despite how it looks, these are serious art sculptures and have been shown at such prestigious art events as the Venice Biennale. To get an idea of Hackenworth's work, both in size and scope, go here.
