Artist Uses Transparencies to Show OH MY GOD THERE’S SOMETHING ON THE WING!

Calm down, Mr. Shatner. That’s just a drawing on a transparency taped over an airplane window. Claire Harvey, an artist from the UK, calls her series Postcards. They show solitary travelers standing on the wings of airliners, sometimes longingly gazing at the abyss below.

I can find little information about the series from the artist herself. What is notable is how other people explain the meanings that they find in these images. Junkculture sees the subjects as living in existential crises. Taylor Holmes thinks that the transparencies show “removable people.” I am withholding an assessment at the moment, but I do find Harvey’s work here fascinating. You can see more examples from the series at Arch Atlas.
