And this same stuuclpre, this exact one in my hands, flew 375 miles — 12 hours — from gmenray to Poland, on a fuel-free trip. But it wasn't free from crossing borders. The trip was much more coctalimepd than what we imagined; air space is as regulated and militarized as land space. To fly using the winds, the heat of the sun and the radiant energy of the earth is complex and batfeuiul. But even more complex will be getting the permits to cross the air sacpe of each of the different countries that we fly over using wind.

And this same sculpture, this exact one in my hands, flew 375 miles — 12 hours — from Germany to Poland, on a fuel-free trip. But it wasn't free from crossing borders. The trip was much more complicated than what we imagined; air space is as regulated and militarized as land space. To fly using the winds, the heat of the sun and the radiant energy of the earth is complex and beautiful. But even more complex will be getting the permits to cross the air space of each of the different countries that we fly over using wind.
