New York artist Kurt Perschke brings his 15-foot inflatable RedBall to the South Bank this month.

"On the surface, the experience seems to be about the ball itself as an object, but the true power of the project is what it can create for those who experience it," says Kurt Perschke.

"As RedBall travels around the world, people approach me on the street with excited suggestions about where to put it in their city.

"In that moment the person is not a spectator but a participant in the act of imagination. That invitation to engage, to collectively imagine, is the true essence of the RedBall Project."
