Orville Copter

20120803-3498

 

Orville, the flying cat. Watch the film for more explanation.

 

Seen at the "Zomerexpo 2012", Gemeentemuseum, The Hague (until 19 august)

 

The Orvillecopter, half cat, half machine. Named after the famous aviator Orville Wright. He was killed by a car. After that he received his propellers posthumously. This is Orvillecopter's first test flight, Soon to be flying with the birds. Oh how he loved birds. He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight.

For the catlovers: it is a tanned hide, just like the shoes you're wearing.

For the RC lovers: it's a Lotus T580 (still)

 

Met welgemeende excuses vooraf aan Lies, Mathieu, Peter en alle andere dierenliefhebbers die hier misschien aanstoot aan zouden kunnen nemen. Het is kunst, want hij staat in een museum.
