The Return of Art in the Darkby Frances Morton
The work is called Moon Balloon and was inspired by a balloon Dryden made for a party by implanting glowing LEDs in an oversized balloon — one of his many clever design ideas. By day, Sensitive Boyfriend peddles printed pillowcases, politician head-chopping blocks and other witty gifts online.
The artists involved in Art in the Dark are a cordial bunch: when Craig Neilson heard about the concept, he contributed the bizarre black costume Dryden is wearing — boots, bubble helmet and all. It’s actually a 1960s diving suit from a decommissioned frigate.
