weather balloon, digital projector, wood, hardware, PVC, rubber, electronics, electrics, a loop of 12 minutes: 46 seconds of digital video footage of Sunnyside Canal, Yakima County, Washington

Digital video footage shot at various locations along the Sunnyside Canal in Yakima County, WA are projected onto an inflated weather balloon. The montage of close-up footage of the movement of water in the canal upon the balloon creates the illusion that the sphere is in motion- rotating and orbiting in place. The projection spills slightly over the edges of the sphere, casting a corona onto the adjacent wall.
