045 - The Kiss

045 - The Kiss

"When we’re two balloons and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person." - Richard Bach

  • Artist Statement

    To the onlooker, the idea of getting a hot air balloon up into the sky seems rather straight forward: with basket attached, use propane tanks to heat the air on the inside of the balloon, until the hot air rises the entire contraption off the ground. However, weather conditions outside of the control of the hot air balloon can keep the team earthbound. This is the basis of Bach's story: if we are two balloons and we can make it up into the sky together, despite the weather, then we're good to fly.
