Air Abraham (2012)
The project "Air Abraham" is a play on orientalism and the history of flying in the orient and occident. The story emanates from the q'uran and the carpet of King Solomon, which is the intersection between good and evil.
Vert sees this as a metaphore for democracy, and in his design, based on deconstructions of the Star of David, that in the same time is the symbol of King Solomon the owner of the carpet. The aesthetic melts science fiction with ancient mythology, mathematics, science and esoteric together to one piece.
The process of the design becomes a blueprint to other dimensions of space, time and being. And the interplay between orient and occident seeks to bring the two worlds closer.Vert blends The language of the ancient with that in a quest for new paths of identity.
