Although beautiful, this design is not practical in reality. The amount of helium needed to lift that much fabric and the issues of weather, wind and the current cost of helium will be prohibitive to most. From a balloon professional's viewpoint, it looks like the designer originally had three balloons (6 or 8 footers) tied to each of the 4 corners of the 2 fabric swags for a total of 24 large balloons, hoping for a nice X pattern over the area. Maybe he lost some to the wind before he could snap the photo... but got something good enough to publish.
Look! Steal This Idea From The Venice Biennale
