"The Super 100 Aeroplane", 2008
Super 100 Wool fabric, batting, polycarbonate
60" x 48" x 36"
Concept: This fabric plane is made of Super 100 Wool, a high quality men’s suiting fabric. It can be set in motion like a flying paper airplane—one that unfailingly returns to its origin to once again be propelled forward. There are welt pockets designed to carry supplies for the journey. This moves forward, backward, and returns to its origin to be repeated again representing the rhythm of change, exploration, and discovery.
Participate: Take the handle and pull or push the plane. The piece will move with momentum in various directions and return to its original position.
