I like to think of some of my sculptures as wild creatures going on about their business, eluding us like a pack of lions or a flock of migratory birds.
This is what Arius and many of its descendants will be. A flock of hydrogen balloons that no one wants to mess with due to their explosive content. The flock of Arius will float away along the Pacific coast like some strange birds from a different time.
As creatures of the sky and sea they use the sun as their source of energy and water as their food. They can fly at great speed with their hydrogen engines or glide peacefully at sunset. They can communicate with each other using sounds and light signals or use GPS to provide their position via radio signals. However, most of the time they will use their intelligence and senses to navigate.
Arius is one step closer to a fully independent creature.
