Dreams of Flight is an elaborate, multi-medium installation that proposes to tell, via a thematic historicized fictional construction, a jet -powered ‘early warning’ scooter – a previously unrevealed or lesser-known chapter from the height of Cold War fears and tensions in the United States. The entire work is a fabrication of my imagination, art practice and studio industry. When installed for public view, the work will be displayed as a recently discovered and actually realized jet-powered scooter, an early warning vehicle that was one of the hundreds seemingly maintained by the US Civil Defense department and its “Revere Wardens’ in the 1950s and 1960s, and decommissioned/scrapped by the late 1970s.
