The artist edition of the #flyingmartha ornithopter by @hapticlab has a companion based off all the research of the passenger pigeons’ wingspan at libraries and museums. since they went extinct in 1914, images of the bird in flight do not exist like they do now. now available in my shop sold together and separately.

Martha... c'est le pigeon de papier et bambou qui vole tout seul ! une vraie de vraie machine volante qui bat des ailes grâce à un mécanisme tout simple et un élastique. un plaisir à faire voler tout l'été et quelle allure elle a également au repos! .
martha... is a paper and bamboo pigeon! a real flying machine that uses flapping wings - powered by a rubber band - to fly . such a charming companion for summer outings or as a decor item!

Flying martha is an intricate ornithopter, made by master kite-makers in china from heat manipulated bamboo and mulberry paper. wind the rubber band, gentle release and watch her fly!

Certain maps remind us of specific people. brooklyn often makes us think of emily fischer (@haptician ) of brooklyn-based @hapticlab. speaking as sarah, i first came into contact with emily when she made a mixtape for my oldest brother; a mix so good that my brothers and i still reference it 20 years later. when tactile was in its infancy emily was an incredible resource, offering advice about running a business and growing into wholesale. we owe a huge portion of our success to her knowledge and guidance. now she’s a constant inspiration as a brilliant creative woman and friend. we get to see her twice a year while we exhibit together at @ny_now, where we catch up, bounce ideas off each other, and see pictures of her perfect baby. emily constantly outdoes her own design work, and her newest flying ornithopter is no exception. so glad to have one for the studio!

The #flyingmartha launches this week at @ny_now! join us in booth 4020 for demos and spring wholesale orders 😊 if you're a kickstarter backer, the flock arrives in a few weeks and you'll be the first to receive 🕊 #hapticlab #nynowmarket #newatnynow

Excited to share #flyingmartha has been accepted in the @ipcny winter group show, edging forward, opening this thursday 1/11 from 6-8pm. the exhibition showcases a wide-range of highly experimental work in contemporary printmaking, both content and technique. creation and construction by @haptician, relief print by me and published by @hapticlab in honor of the extinct passenger pigeon. i got to preview a lot of incredible work at drop off (sadly i can’t make it to the show) and am incredibly impressed by how printers push outside of paper, form and really play with ideas. on view until march 28.

Edit: today was the last day to back the #flyingmartha ornithopter by @hapticlab. i was commissioned to create an artist edition woodblock of the extinct passenger pigeon as a symbol of hope that our generation can preserve our land that all creatures call home. thanks everyone for the support and congrats to haptic lab for a successful campaign!

Only 6 days left to back the #flyingmartha on kickstarter! link in profile 🕊#hapticlab #ornithopter #passengerpigeon

comment 0 star 223 October 2017

The #flyingmartha ornithopter project by @hapticlab is an absolute dream project to work on. never did i ever think a personal study of bird flights through installations and a stop-motion could lead to one actually flying, engineered by @haptician’s magic mind. all in the name of hope with awareness to how we can prevent tragedies such as the extinction of the passenger pigeon. if you haven't taken a chance to look at the @kickstarter project, there's a week left to back the artist edition; a direct woodblock print to the structure. i'm excited to get back on this vandercook at @havenpress to finish the 2-color run.

The #flyingmartha has less than two weeks left on @kickstarter! link in profile 🕊i made dozens of prototypes over the past three years before partnering with our kite artisans in weifang, eventually designing a lightweight bamboo bird using traditional kite making methods. craft knowledge > industrial design #hapticlab #kickstarter #ornithopter #wip
