Normally we would think a room full of hundreds or thousands of balloons would be noisy and annoying, but not when German artist William Forsythe is at the helm. The site-specific work, Scattered Crowd, takes the visitor into a dreamlike, fairy-tale-esque landscape. And hopefully, nobody pops a balloon and ruins the tranquility.

Want to cure your fear of heights? Want to make it worse? Want the illusion of flight and walking on air? Well, then you should head to Milan, Italy and take part in the interactive installation, On Space Time Foam, by Tomás Saraceno at Hangar Bicocca atrium.

If you film it in your country, you get the creepy airport installation/sculpture. At the Wellington Airport in New Zealand, a 2,645 pounds,9.8 foot high and 43 foot long sculpture of Gollum is now reaching over you as you wait and eat before your flight. Done in conjunction with the release of The Hobbit (in theaters on December 14), the piece was created by the Weta Workshop.

Let's let Jen Lewin explain "The Pool": The Pool is an environment of giant, concentric circles created from interactive circular pads. By entering the pool, you enter a world where play and collaborative movement create swirling effects of light and color. Imagine a giant canvas where you can paint and splash light collaboratively.

Obviously, unless you have been under a rock, you know that it is Election Day here in the United States of America. That said, go vote. Don't read blogs. Wait, maybe the New York Times, but not art blogs. But if you happen to be on the art blog rounds today, we found this sculpture by Katie Grinnan called Mirage, that we thought spoke to the coming together of people to do something in unison. Hopefully vote blue. Or perhaps that Mirage thing is too much to ignore...

German-based artist, Corneila Konrads, continues to make incredible land art installations that defy gravity and float naturally over landscapes around the world. Using branches, stones, and other natural objects, her installations strike an ambivalent pose.

After our partnership with Outside Lands over the summer Juxtapoz was lucky enough to be invited to partner with Treasure Island Music Festival. After a light breakfast we headed to Civic Center to take the free shuttle, yes free, out to the island, a quick 10 - 15 minute ride across the Bay Bridge to enter the festival and see the likes of Public Enemy, The xx, Grimes, Ty Segall, Matthew Dear, Youth Lagoon, M83, and others.
