Yara + Davina's Pet Balloon Service

Yara + Davina's Pet Balloon Service

How did you decide what to name your pet? From places to locations, the process of turning a word into a name can have a fascinating tale and artist duo YARA + DAVINA want to hear them. For this joyful public artwork, they’re giving away balloon animals in the Royal Docks in exchange for stories about why people name their pets.
