This project came from Jose-Manuel Gonçalves, the programmer of the biennal festival Depayz’Art in Melun (Paris outskirts). The New years Eve party was held for 15 000 people in an Airport. The idea of the festival is to bring artists to work with the local potential of this region. The Aeronautic Museum is next to this airport, they lent me all the video archive they had, about 500 hours. Most of these were B to B movies to sell aircraft motors, i manages to make 15 minutes of synched fun. Another hard part was to complete these with 40 videoclips that had planes & good music, for the big show with a round of 9 screens of 10*5 meters! Oof plane took off…
