Monad Pavilion is a site-specific, transient structure made up of strings and balloons. It embodies, reflects and responds to its surroundings. The balloons, the lattice structure, and the art event are themselves temporary and contingent upon the elements. The ganglia of the lattice express natural structure — the trees and their roots, the sky and its clouds, the earth and its grass and dirt. Ropes and pulleys interact with natural forces and visitor interventions. The airborne balloons image thought and nature, their perception and passing.
