I have been always inspired from the nature. Nature has this perfect blend of art and science, which has evolved since the Big Bang, i.e., birth of universe (At least that’s what we human think as of now) to this great optimized design after multiple iterations just like any other design process. Humanity’s great designers, scientists, engineers has always looked towards nature’s wonder to try to take inspirations for their creations.
I was attracted towards human-flight and been curious as how humanity has this constant urge and dreamt of flying since the era of Daedalus and Icarus tale to Wright Brothers – the evolution of human ideas & their design philosophies to approach this obsession.
Given all this, I decided to try to build human size articulated wings to capture imagination of our ancestors who studies birds motion and tried to replicate it for humans. Although, I wanted to create much more advanced version of that making use of my engineering skills, but I will try to limit here & capture the artistic side of that idea by using recyclables, wood, PVC pipes, clothes, etc.
Main Inspiration for this work mostly would be – Daedalus and Icarus Tale, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Flying Machine.
