Created for the inaugural year of PDXWLF 2016, Jen Fuller's glass paper planes make a return flight to the Hawthorne Bridge. Reclaimed storm windows donated from Portlanders are hand crafted into 150 flying glass paper planes and projected with video of the sky. The act of allowing each plane to fly independently is an essential part of this project’s evolution from reclaimed pieces of Portland... to unified large-scale installation.. to deconstruction, so each plane is available for purchase.

Portland artist Jen Fuller blends the contrasting aesthetics of glass and steel to create sculpture she refers to as “totems for the soul.” Motivated by the technical challenges inherent in transforming materials with history into time-based experiences, her work reflects the transparency and vulnerability found in humanity and nature.
