Says Perschke in his statement, “On the surface, the experience seems to be about the ball itself as an object, but the true power of the project is what it can create for those who experience it.

I have witnessed it across continents, diverse age spans, cultures, and languages, always issuing an invitation. That invitation to engage, to collectively imagine, is the true essence of the Red Ball Project.”
