Notes on : an Urge to Fly

161130-urge-to-fly-image

 

This piece

A dynamic

Kinetic piece

(when you wind it up)…

Is a reflection on

The idea of

Flight and

The fact that we

live in a

universe where

things can take to

the air up

there

and for a brief

time

fly….

 

What is this

Tendency in the

Universe?

 

This work

Considers the possibility

That the underlying

Mechanical

Tendency of

An urge to fly

Is locked in

The simple structure

Of an old

Burnt out

Coffee pot

Driving

The

Rotation

of a

Wooden

Household

Peg…

And this

Is the very

Basis of

Flight

Where the

Coat hanger

Fledgling

Gets

Occasionally

Nudged to

Consider the

Possibility of

Taking to the

sky
