Instagram Public Photos with #flyingmartha

This coming tuesday i launch my most ambitious project yet via @kickstarter: the #flyingmartha ornithopter, a mechanical flying passenger pigeon. it's taken me four years to make something that 1) really flies and flies well 2) tells an amazing story 3) looks beautiful, is entirely handmade, and is fairly priced. i can't wait to share this passion project with you 🙏✨❤️🐦#hapticlab #ornithopter #passengerpigeon #extinctionisforever #kickstarter #imfreakingout #believethehype i'm gonna need your help, everybody!

The #flyingmartha is now on @kickstarter, a wind-up flying passenger pigeon powered by a rubber band! link in profile 🐦❤️✨🙏 this has been one of my passion projects for years, combining my research in early american aviation (the wright bros) with a deepening interest in sustainable design (the sixth extinction). it's a fun toy, an anti-drone, and a beautiful object you'll be proud to display in your home. please consider supporting the flying martha and help get the word out! #hapticlab #kickstarter #passengerpigeon #ornithopter #extinctionisforever

The artist edition #flyingmartha for our @kickstarter project by the incredible @nicamiller 🕊 hand-carved woodblock print, made in brooklyn using a letterpress on mulberry paper #hapticlab #nicannettemiller #kickstarter #passengerpigeon

It’s amazing what you can do with a little bit of wood, paper and a whole lot of imagination. the flying martha ornithopter by @hapticlab is made of bamboo and mulberry paper. as serendipity would have it, mulberry is a traditional kite material and what i happen to use for all my woodblock prints. this means the 2-color block print of the extinct passenger pigeon can go straight to structure and actually fly. this is a video of my first time handling what was once imagined. please take the time to check out haptic lab’s @kickstarter.

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!

Diese wunderschöne vogel namens "flying martha" lässt sich über ein gummiband aufziehen und fliegt dann per flügelschlag. er ist dabei durch seine leichte und biegsame konstruktion erstaunlich stabil und darf auch ruhig mal gegen eine hauswand fliegen. für kinder und erwachsene.

Can we talk about the flying martha by haptic lab? this ornithopter (or flying machine) is a beautiful object for any room but we think it would be especially beautiful in a nursery. or of course you could wind it up and let it fly! 🕊

it comes packed safely in a beautiful gift box too.

The *best* part of the #flyingmartha project was collab’ing with artist @nicamiller: nic is now selling a gorgeous companion piece to our ornithopters, visit her site to learn more 💙#nicannettemiller #hapticlab #ornithopter #woodblockprint #artistedition

comment 3 star 387 June 2018

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!
