Archival Ink on vellum
2.75 inches x 10 inches (open)

As the book opens, one balloon multiplies into two, then four, and eventually several hot air balloons lowering themselves together. These symmetrical, silhouetted balloons look at once like a diagram of mitosis or an inkblot test, unfolding and multiplying into a magical scene as they meditatively descend, diagraming the beauty and simplicity of the journey that happened and the return to homeostasis.
