The action Balloon took place on June 15th, 1977. The participants sewed pieces of coloured calico together to form a gigantic envelope, which would serve to put in an equally large balloon. Then, out in the forest, in the pouring rain, they started to inflate toy balloons, which they used to stuff the big balloon with. After the bigger balloon was completely stuffed, they put in a ringing alarm clock, and let the whole haystack-shaped creation drift down the Klyazma river.
