During the final week of Stockholm’s year as European Capital of Culture, I made an installation, ‘A Drop of Light’, similar to ’Ein Volumen aus Licht’ that I’d created some years earlier. I refined my production technique; the balloon was tailor-made from a three-dimensional data model in accordance with my drafts. Also, I didn’t have to set up the balloon myself this time. It was given a very prominent place outside the Parliament building in Stockholm, mainly because this was an open space large enough for erecting the installation. Sadly, the balloon was knifed by someone during the first night, but it was mended and remained there for the duration of the exhibition, one week in December 1998.

Two years after that, the same balloon participated in the Light Festival in Helsingborg, and in 1999 I used it again as part of my own wedding-dress.
