Michelle Hackman, contributing editor from the Yale Art News asks:
Q: What inspired you to work with hot air balloons?
A: [It happened] by chance. When I did my army service in Israel, I was in an elite paratroopers unit. I wasn’t a fighter; I was an educational instructor and dealt with everything culture-related. We were only four girls and 170 guys, so it was a very intense service with lots of drama, operations and people dying and getting hurt. I was very idealistic [at the start].
