Overview

A balloon artist and photographer travel the world surprising people with improvised, inflatable crowns and offer a deep view into the nature of joy.

The simple act of twisting a balloon for a complete stranger can make people instant friends. This idea animated balloon artist Addi Somekh and photographer Charlie Eckert to improvise balloon crowns for unsuspecting people throughout thirty-five countries and document their reactions. Part photography book, part sociological study, part spontaneous party, Inflatable Planet chronicles features of over two hundreds photos from this international experiment in joy.

His side hustles include teaching a critical thinking course at UC Santa Cruz and using his homemade balloon bass to make music with stand up comedian Reggie Watts in their LA-based band, Unpopable.
