Jeff Koons is an American contemporary artist and sculptor. In the 1985 Koons created a series of three 'total equilibrium' tanks, with one, two and three basketballs suspended in distilled water and sodium chloride.

In the background of the photograph above 'Klein's Sponges' and 'Klein's Torso' can be seen. Amongst the group admiring 'Koons' Balls' are Mark Wallinger (white shirt, black sunglasses), Anya Gallaccio (face visible between basketballs), Matthew Barney (bald, ginger beard) and Justina Heslop (black hair in ponytail, second from the right).
