"I Fly Like Paper Get High Like Planes" is an installation by artist Dawn Ng. She remarks, "[It's] core to my ongoing study of home. Having spent the past 8 years away, I have become obsessed by the notion of home and particularly intrigued by the origin of the word nostalgia which from two Greek roots, nostos, "returning home" and algos "pain."...Symbolic of travel, each paper plane carries this universal desire to leave or return home." [sic]
It seems to be a series of rows of paper airplanes that are not suspended from the ceiling, but attached like a horizontal garland of sorts from a single point of origin.
I'm sure standing in this room would be completely incredible.
