I don't know about you, but looking at these images makes me feel a little bit claustrophobic. Partially because I find these installations by the Spanish art collective Penique Productions to be breathtakingly beautiful, but also because they appear to turn their surroundings into animate beings that desperately seem to be struggling for air (let the buildings breathe!). How are these made? By giant inflatable plastic balloons that are pressurized to expand to an interior space, consequently wrapping the architecture of the room in all-consuming swaths of bright color. Lighting these elaborate constructions from outside makes the inside of these balloons-cum-rooms practically glow. Wouldn't they be fabulous to see one in person? Talk about instagram worthy!

Until we can make that happen, check out more of their gorgeous work here.
