Plane.ception creates a metaphorical parallel between user-made paper planes and the differences in self-expression between individuals. It captures data from over 20 planes and visualizes their construction on a composited 2D image. What becomes apparent through a process of difference and repetition is the myriad ways in which these apparently simple objects are constructed. The differences are visualized both in photographic form and schematically, both of which point to their commonalities and variations in design and structure.
