Dawn Ng’s installation of paper airplanes was displayed at the Black Out museum in 2009. The repetition of a paper airplane gives the installation a sense of space. The airplanes are installed to give the appearance of them of the planes frozen in mid-flight. The installation in not symmetric, however it demonstrates scale. On the left side of the gathering of paper airplanes, the planes are closely hung. This takes away from the negative space while condensing the paper airplane’s surface area. As the planes progress in their flight, they began to be spaced more. Focusing on the space occupied by the objects, their composition is seen as a gradient scale.
