Balance is an interactive sculpture that builds itself up only through collaboration. The two participants have to blow at the same time into the  input sensors, located at each side of the central piece. The moment one of them refrains, or both, the sculpture collapses. The setting makes people unable to maintain eye contact with each other, which implies that communication prior to actioning the mechanism is key. While they are blowing into the mouthpiece, if the condition is met, they will be able to see the sculpture coming up and forming completely. 

Balance requires collaboration, communication, and focus, in order to create a beautiful piece together.
