An empty room bisected by a taut rope tied to a concrete block on the floor. The rope goes up through the space and passes through a hole drilled in the glass of a skylight and on to a weather balloon floating above the building. Seen against the sky, the balloon floats in space with an empty chair hanging beneath it. As the vehicle moves with the air the string twitches restlessly against its mooring. Moving past the piece the viewer notices a pair of scissors set into the wall, waiting behind thin emergency glass.
The balloon and chair are precariously poised at the moment of departure – ready to leave the concrete block and gallery behind.
