The Airplane At MoMA

"On July 25, 2008 at approximately 7PM, this delicate piece of paper took flight from the 6th floor balcony and came to rest here, on this perch, just seconds later. While resting upside down in its current state, the hopeful forces behind its creation envisioned it to forever remain in flight. Despite the overwhelming improbability of this hope, an attempt was made with full belief that anything could happen and that nothing is certain, even the laws of nature.

A plane was first thrown out of spontaneous boredom while stuck in a crowd too thick to see what we were there for. It fell to the 2nd floor only to be stomped on by an unknown stranger upon its landing. The second plane, only done out of frustration in the lack of flight of the first, rocketed out of sight and without intent, to where it now lies. It landed there only by chance, a one in a million chance. It is still there, so far."
