How would you react to a balloon invasion?

White balloons spill out the windows and doors of a house, invade a golf course and overflow from a burnt-out car in a series of installations (most famously, London's Covent Garden) by French artist Charles Petillon. 
In his Invasions series, Paris-based photographer and installations artist Petillon aims to use balloons to alter the way people perceive familiar things and spaces. 
"These balloon invasions are metaphors," said the artist. "Their goal is to change the way in which we see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them."
"It is our way of looking at things that I am trying to transform and revive and therefore make it possible to go beyond practical perception to aesthetic experience: a visual emotion," he added.
