Ep. 28 Doron Gazit: Olympics Fly Guy inventor takes Inflatable Art to Devastated Environments
By Ashley Mazanec
Designer and environmental artist Doron Gazit‘s use of the natural elements - in particular wind - has provoked and fascinated onlookers from the Fly Guy of the Olympics to visual feasts across castles and deserts. Since 2014, he has sounded a creative alarm of sorts through his Red Line Project, a series of red balloon tunnels highlighting humans’ misuse of the environment. Gazit’s temporary installations can be found documented across the globe from the Dead Sea sinkholes to Alaskan glaciers.
