UP, UP, AND AWAY! Hot air balloon flight a success!

Today, in a walmart parking lot, friends and curious onlookers gathered to follow the collective VITALforms as they drifted away in a hot air balloon, while reading fragments of poems and texts. Those on the ground navigated the streets to best close the distance between themselves and the balloon in order to communicate through the use of megaphones. As the conversation explored the discourse of love, trying to negotiate such a distance literally became an exercise on the idea of longing.

The conversation continues at the VITALforms blog. Be sure to check back for more images, thoughts, and a transcription of the conversation.

Also, check out the Bureau for Open Culture's Picasa site for more pictures of the event.
