One good reason to visit 209 Tuam Street

Behind the scenes

As reported on Tuesday, glitter's one reason to get along to our outpost at 212 Madras Street.

So how about one good reason to make your way to the new outpost at 209 Tuam Street?

That'd be air — air, that is, wrapped up in some very big balloons by Seung Yul Oh.

Here's Huggong on the grow during installation.
