Airigami consists of using balloons (and air) to make works of art. Considering the pieces are little more than fancy balloon animals, it's pretty surprising just how beautiful and detailed they can be. The above image, a faithful recreation of The Birth of Venus in balloons by Larry Moss, is a perfect example of just how talented some of these artists are.

Ranging from silly to mind blowing, this collection of 12 airigami artworks is a great introduction to the medium.
