The Airplane Drawings are an ongoing project begun in 1998. The drawings are representations of ground patterns seen from the window of an airplane while flying. Working quickly with a ballpoint pen on magazine pages forces unintentional juxtapositions of line, image and language.

Fifty-five Airplane Drawings were installed for the solo exhibition SKYWRITING at Kunstverein Baden in Austria. About the works, curator Verena Gamper writes:

"This unusual perspective, together with the constantly changing view through the window, demanded a maximum of spontaneity and a minimum of reflection. What transpires is a combination of glyph and graphic, of topography and typography that, despite the random nature of the concurrence, sometimes results in uncanny relationships. Suddenly the spaces intentionally left blank in the graphic design of the magazine become bearers of information that draw the narratives of all the images together in a dialogue."
