This accordion comes in a beautifully made folder and the work is made up of photographs of 16 folded paper planes that are based upon drawings & diagrams for planes that were never actually manufactured. Photographed in a studio setting the 'planes' appear to have a substance and presence that is at odds with their reality. On the reverse side of the images are texts that describe the name, date and country of origin, as well as information about the design and history of each plane. This is a really fascinating conceptual accordion bookwork!
19 single pages at 8.25" x 11.75", and fully opened 13ft 0.75".
|Each plane design has annotations and a short history on the back.|

Some very simple accordions quite often have nice surprises inside, and this is one of them! The Bar Kokhba revolt was a rebellion of the Jews of the Roman province of Judea, led by Simon bar Kokhba, against the Roman Empire. Fought circa 132–136 CE, it was the last of three major Jewish–Roman wars, so it is also known as The Third Jewish–Roman War or The Third Jewish Revolt. Some historians also refer to it as the Second Revolt of Judea, not counting the Kitos War (115–117 CE), which had only marginally been fought in Judea. The revolt erupted as a result of religious and political tensions in Judea. Simon bar Kokhba, the commander of the revolt, was regarded by many Jews as the Messiah, who would restore their national independence. [source: Wikipedia]
