Phillip Kalantzis-Cope’s On The Plane series

For many of us the act of traveling by air — whilst not a daily activity — is now a regular part of our lives. Whether it be for pleasure or business, this very unnatural experience of being transported from country to country, or even continent-to-continent, at speeds of many hundreds of miles and hour, has become an accepted part of our social life.

Says Phillip Kalantzis-Cope of this series: ‘When we climb to 30,000 feet, our perspective becomes that of a deity, with the rules of time and space altered as we rush over the earth. In flight we are able to view the most remote corners of the natural world and the vast spread of the world we have constructed. It gives us the unique perspective to look at the interaction of the natural and constructed in a truly holistic way’.
