Paper Trail

2009 Model remote-control helicopters trailing toilet paper ribbons. Split second moments. 10 x 15 x 15m.
'New Art Land', episode 8: series two.

New Art Land is a New Zealand television series that commissions artists to create and complete an artwork which involves a community. The riskier the better. The community I choose to become involved with was a group of model helicopter enthusiasts. The plan was to choreograph some airborne ribbons of paper. It proved very difficult but the final moments captured on film and the group dynamic made the project well worth the effort.
