A transitory veil on the move. A dwelling that traverses with its people, nomadic farmers. Anchored to the host and kept alive by the hot air balloons that pinch the tensile canopy upward mimicking the soaring cliffs in the background. Layers of fabric overlap to create overcasting shadows in this scorching land. The connections formed between the balloons itself allow the users to take over a different layer of the sky to create a floating garden, a bonus shading element!  The gentle sway of the balloons with the wind, brings the desert alive spoiling one for sleep that will never hit the same. At the slightest indication of their cattle they’d go about the same way as we came, translating from a home to a vehicle. A transitory abode for a shaking land.
