Pants Becoming Kites measures the space between waiting and performing in an unusual yet familiar duet. As pants become kites, we learn to find pleasure in the most practical of places: bus stops. It will leave you asking, "What am I waiting for today?" Inspired by the daily commute to work, the movement highlights pedestrian qualities in our daily moments of transit. How can we be inspired in "the ordinary?"
