Abstract

The author traces the origins of flight in early works of art and literature, where flight is seen centuries before it existed as a thing of function. In more recent times artists have begun to use the actual tools of flight as tools for making art. This article documents the work of some of these artists and the author's own Aerial Theatre, in which he flies an aerobatic biplane trailing smoke to perform multi-dimensional events in the sky.
