Keep your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground

Oct 6, 2015
Last weekend, my boyfriend and I went to see two different cloud themed installations in London. We first went to the London Design festival, which took place at Victoria and Albert museum. My primary interest was to look at the Curious Cloud installation that took place in level two. However, we got horribly lost since the museum had a confusing layout, like not all staircases goes to each floor. Once we found the location, we had to queue around 20 minutes or so. The installation was amazing and it was really worth the wait. The installation comprised of glass bulbs containing hand made insects, which rotates around inside in response to the movement of visitors, creating unique sounds and light effects.

Afterwards, we went to see the Heartbeat installation at Covent Garden. Covent Garden was more crowded with people than usual, perhaps it was due to the popularity of the installation. The installation comprised of 100,000 white balloons suspending across the ceiling. It was incredible to look at, especially the way the balloons pulse a gentle white light, which symbolised beating of a heart as well as a reflection of the history, energy and dynamics of Covent Garden.

It's only been one week back to university, but I already feel overwhelmed by the amount of work in third year. I guess all I can do is to work hard and try not to over stress. If there is one thing that can help you feel better, it's to look at pretty pictures, so here goes :)

"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."
