A British artist released 2,057 foam “happy clouds” in London today


Said Stuart Semple: “I know at times like this it’s easy to make creativity a low priority, but I want to show on a very human level that an artistic idea might be able to do something important, even for a fleeting moment.”

The “happy clouds” were created using helium, soap and vegetable dye; they drifted over the Thames and the City of London after being released from the Tate Museum of Modern Art.  One was released every seven seconds from eight o’clock this morning, and the eco-friendly clouds lasted 30 minutes before dissolving in the air.

How long before someone photoshops this photo to make it look like the Stay Puff Marshmellow Man is attacking London?
