Sprouts in Space.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

In case you're wondering what you're looking at: that's a bouquet of flowers and a 50-year-old bonsai tree traveling through space on helium balloons. Launched approximately 90,000 feet in the air by Tokyo artist Azuma Makoto and his team of ten, the journey upward was documented with the help of six Go Pros, two GPS tracking devices, and many sets of flabbergasted eyes. Reflecting on the accomplishment, Makoto tells T Magazine, "I always wanted to travel to space."
