Flight/Air/Fire is an installation of 30 paper pulp banners made by Lecturer in Visual Arts Daniel Heyman while in residence at the Awagami Paper Factory in Shikoku, Japan. Working in traditional techniques using dyed Japanese mulberry and gampi pulp, Heyman has created vibrantly colored paper banners in the form of traditional Japanese nobori, that, taken as a whole, allude to extreme climate and weather events as a flock of geese navigates a winter storm by the Rhode Island coast. The pulp paintings of Flight/Air/Fire are installed with their backs to the gallery entrance, and viewers are invited to walk through the installation to take the exhibition in as a whole.
