Last Tuesday (20 August 2019), I went to my class. A stack of floating utopia paper fold catches my attention. I looked into it and saw the answers were folded behind every question. Was it a sequel of the FieldTrip for the Floating Utopias exhibition at ArtScience museum?
The paper fold was a summary of the history of an inflatable art on flying objects. Walter Rabbit was also featured inside one of the fold. A recap of the fascinating discovery to know its beginning. Hot air ballooning was introduced to the public in Europe in the eighteenth centuries. And I remember the first batch of animal experiments was a duck, sheep, and rooster. The reason they were chosen due to showing the least resistance. “Do they lose their lives during the experiment?” That question instantly popped out and opened my mouth on their well-being. The ArtScience Museum tour guide assured and confirmed their safety. I felt so relieved that they were safe and alive.
And I observed that there is a tiny little cut. My lecturer speaks out that it can be blown into a balloon. My classmate also wondered to puff into the one and an only small hole. That confirmed my deduction. So, I breathed in and blew into the balloon. She blew hers. All my focus and attention were to blow the paper fold. Slowly, the paper fold expanded. The more I exhaled, the paper fold continuously grew more. Finally, it inflated into a big circle-squarish paper balloon. My classmate also able to blow into a complete paper balloon.
