Sky Writing

A seemingly abstract image. Ribbons and string float in the sky.
Anne Bean, Sky Writing, 2004, Artists Airshow

Artists’ Airshow was an experimental day of art and flying in and around Europe's largest wind tunnel. Airshow used the now deserted research facility where supersonic flight was developed and the ghosts of sixties rocket projects linger.

Concluding the day with Anne Bean literally created a spectacular drawing for the sky, using balloons, parachute flares and small rockets, in collaboration with pyrotechnicians Mark Anderson and Nick Sales.
