Happy Cloud

Stuart Semple - Happy Cloud Smiley Face (2009)I finally caught up with last Wednesday's silly story about somebody releasing 2,000 pink smiley faces into the air over London. My initial thought was "Not another idiot unleashing balloons that will kill wildlife"! Thankfully, it wasn't. Stuart Semple's Happy Cloud "installation", released at Tate Modern, turned out to comprise helium, soap and vegetable dye. The faces lasted about 30 minutes before dissipating harmlessly. Stuart wanted to cheer us up. Humph! Looks a damned glum smiley to me, more like a porker's snout.
