When artist Cesar Saez was asked why he’d want to float a giant banana-shaped dirigible over Texas, he replied: “Texas is as symbolic as the banana.” $65,000 has already gone into investigation and planning to launch the banana, with the final “Geostationary Banana Over Texas” expected to cost about $1 million. But if it works, it’ll be completely worth it. [GT]
