Kites


An exploration of kites from different angles including cultural, aesthetical and functional aspects.

The first flying objects crafted by human hands, kites were used for everything from fishing to signaling and served a variety of religious and ceremonial functions.

The kite is a connection of humans to the sky and represents the wish to fly.
The object itself has traveled through thousands of years of design iteration in different cultures where it was refined and shaped.
