Situated on the MediaCityUK Piazza, Mini Burble will light up the night sky for five nights while audiences explore their inner-creativity and paint the sculpture in a mass collaborative effort. Their interaction with the artwork will trigger animated colours and set vivid patterns flowing across the 300 balloons' surface.¬†
Mini Burble will be launched at 9pm on Tuesday 14th¬†July, and will then show twice every evening: first between 5:00pm - 7:30pm (non-illuminated), and then between 9:00pm - 10:30pm (illuminated).¬†
