Geostationary Banana Over Texas project seeks talented scientists, engineers and cultural critics

The Geostationary Banana Over Texas is a project by Montreal artist César Saëz. Saëz is attempting to put a gigantic floating banana into orbit. The high altitude banana blimp will be visible in the sky above texas--a sort of fruit-based version of our moon.

Saëz is looking for talented engineers who have experience in the fields of airship construction, bamboo structures and low orbit thermodynamics to assist with the project. Mathematicians, cultural critics and anyone who happens to have a suitable launching pad in northern Mexico are also encouraged to contact him at:

"César Saëz’s works, for the most part, consist in art-interventions in public spaces. These are sculptures, installations, or actions performed in a public domain, be it a street corner, a public square or a park. These urban interventions try to address the public and their social interaction in reference to that space. More specifically, they question the symbolism, or the politics in that space. These actions are un-authorized -they are simply just realized. They are un-announced, they spontaneously appear, and dis-appear; they are ephemeral and harmless."
