In this system, a punctured weather balloon filled with helium and salt water in intervals determined by the changing sound levels in the space. As the material passed through the balloon, salt water accumulated on the concrete below, mapping the experience of the system over time.

The needle and thread used to puncture the balloon was also used to assemble the system, exploring how strength and complexity can stem from vulnerability and injury.
