Maquette, Paper Starlings, 2010
In 2010, the Guggenheim Museum invited Laarman to create an intervention for the museum's iconic rotunda. Inspired by bird murmurations, Laarman's concept proposed a ͞flock͟ of more than 200 paper planes spiralling gracefully overhead. Laarman developed the proposal with Dutch company United States of Entertainment, MIT, and aerodynamics engineer David Lentink.
