Abstract

The human mind is a remarkable device for summarizing and simplifying data with symbols and myths. Like people of ancient times we use myths to understand the things unfamiliar to us. Considering that technology is often hard to understand, one would expect there to be myths based around it. In this project the myths surrounding the jet aircraft were investigated. Data was collected from pop culture, sketches and interviews. Eventually this was condensed into a triptych of three acrylic paintings.
