According to the dictionary “a Plane” (from the French avion, and this as augmentative form of Latin avis, bird), also called airplane, is a fixed wing aircraft with greater density than air, provided with wings and a cargo body capable of flying… Nevertheless, to truly fly… much more than that is necessary.

In my collection of planes I seek to create – using discarded materials, whose destination was to be garbage and then forgotten – an impractical fleet, with the most ridiculous aircraft possible, through the assembly of pieces in awkward and incoherent positions. Because: learning to fly is not easy… neither is learning to fall. But: living on the ground… is boring.
