Aerocare is a nationwide service company to the airline industry. When moving to a new corporate headquarters in Brisbane Plico Design was approached to come up with an aerial artwork for their corporate boardroom. The brief called for the piece to have a flight theme. The assignment was unusual as the boardroom was two stories tall and the actual piece was to be viewed both from ground level as well as a 2nd floor mezzanine.
Hundreds of small paper doves were folded using the traditional paper folding technique of ‘Origami’. The papers used were of archival quality capable of lasting over a hundred years.
When the folding was complete, each bird was individually coated with an eco-friendly polymer to ensure they were moisture resistant and to enable easy cleaning at some later date. Each bird was then individually suspended on a custom-made frame and strategically positioned. The overall effect of hundreds of suspended doves gave the illusion of a 737 jet-liner soaring through the sky.
