Two Quickies are Better than One


Two Quickies Are Better Than One envisioned a kinetic sculpture, proposing a unique and intriguing concept. The artwork, proposed in 2010, was designed to consist of two real airplanes, each piloted by a single passenger, hinged on a central vertical pole and connected to a horizontally oriented fixed arm. The movement and equilibrium of this sculptural apparatus would necessitate each pilot’s precise control over their aircraft. This intricate dance between the two planes, with one's actions affecting the other's height and movement, created a captivating spectacle that underscored the need for skilled operators.

While Two Quickies Are Better Than One presented a thrilling concept of a ride, it is primarily an artistic endeavor with a high bar to actualization, until now in digital form.
