“Folding Space (Paper Planes)” |Randy Grskovic| Collage, Shadow Box (2010)
This was a really fun set of work to create. I folded images of space into various stages of paper planes. At the time there was a lot of talk about the cancelation of the American space program due to funding cuts. I was interested in the child like wonder that comes from dreaming of being an astronaut and what that would do to the imagination if this career was no longer an option for kids. As a child I dreamed about traveling through space. I still do.
If children can’t imagine growing up to become an astronaut, what’s left, imagining growing up to become an app developer?
