Legendary artist Christo‘s newest project, Big Air Project, is more than just big.  Even ‘huge’ would be an understatement.  At nearly 300 feet tall Big Air Package could possibly be the largest indoor work of art ever.  Housed in a venue that was once a gas holder, the project is exactly as its title describes it.  Big Air Package is a massive inflated cylinder with no hard underlying structure – a giant balloon.  The project’s press release explains how it functions:

“Two air fans creating a constant pressure of 27 pascal (0.27 millibar) keep the package upright. Airlocks allow visitors to enter the package. Illuminated through the skylights of the Gasometer and 60 additional projectors, the work of art creates a diffuse light throughout the interior.”  [via]
