The New Millennium Paper Airplane Contest takes flight


Although I love the Wii, Guitar Hero, and the Lego Mindstorm, there is something to be said about the simplicity of play which require the most basic of materials. The Public Art Fund and artist Klara Hobza are hosting, The New Millennium Paper Airplane Contest. The event will be held in the Great Hall at the New York Hall of Science on November 1, 2008 and was inspired by the storied 1967 contest at the same location. Hobza's work deals with communication, performance, and documentation. Based in New York, her work has been shown internationally.

The planes must be made from a sheet of 8.5"x11" or A4 paper or smaller. Categories include: distance flown, duration aloft, beauty, spectacular failure, children (under 13) division, and a "surprise" category. Standout planes will be included in a book created by the artist and the Public Art Fund. Early registration closes on October 28, although you can register at the event.
