    7 x 16 x 7 feet

    Dylan Gauthier’s two-part project explores the aesthetic, conceptual, and transcendent aspects of flight, invention, and collaboration. The artist pairs a sculpture based on the triangular-trussed kites built by Alexander Graham Bell with a monthly publication of kite patterns (“scores”) for visitors to take away, assemble, and fly. To accompany his kite scores, Gauthier will host a monthly kite-flying performance (see the schedule below and here) throughout the duration of EAF16 during which his latest kite pattern is launched.

    Feel free to download Gauthier's monthly Kite Scores and research notes for his patterns, commissioned for the EAF16 exhibition and published by Endless Editions:
