Red Ball bounces in 'for act of imagination'
A giant red ball has been intriguing visitors and locals after cropping up at locations across the English Riviera.
The inflatable sphere, which measures 15ft, is the work of New York artist Kurt Perschke. After visiting Paignton and Torquay, the art project will travel through Plymouth, Exeter and Weymouth before finishing its tour in London.
The huge sphere has been squeezed between buildings or perched on bridges in locations including Chicago, Barcelona and Abu Dhabi.
It has been brought to the region by Torbay Council and the Dartington Hall Trust in partnership with Plymouth City Council and Exeter City Council, and with funding by the Arts Council.

Mr Perschke said: "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."
After leaving Torbay on Tuesday it heads to Plymouth between June 8-10 then Exeter from 15-17.
