Airigami designed this life-size balloon dinosaur for the Virginia Museum of Natural History.

About the project:

We made a 20-foot acrocanthosaurus, a dinosaur from the early cretaceous period. I’ve always enjoyed blending art and science. This event was a perfect opportunity to do that.

We’ve built dinosaurs before, but this is the first time we were able to build alongside a cast of an actual dinosaur skeleton. Having a life-size model next to us sure made the construction a lot easier. Our design, based on images we found online, was pretty accurate, but it was nice to be able to look up and take measurements off of the real thing.
