It's thought that the origin of the first paper airplane can be traced back to China over 2,000 years ago. However, in 2003, Congress declared Ohio as the Birthplace of Aviation, due to the The Wright Brothers being from Dayton, Ohio.

For this piece, I took a ream of paper and made 500 paper airplanes. I then threw them at the wall. After they hit, I inserted a marking flag to indicate where each plane had made contact. In doing so, I was seeking to construct a composition of flight patterns that would map out the surface of the wall.
