Starry Starry Flight by Rhys Clarke
We’re off to a non-flying start to 2014 with this immersive poster by motion designer Rhys Clarke, who has crowded out a beautiful sky with a galaxy of tiny planes to urge us to fly a little less.
“Having lived in London my whole life, when I look up at the sky at night I am far too accustomed to seeing planes gliding across my view. I wanted to create a poster to express that the sky should be for stars and not ugly flying objects. If we were to fly less, this would both help reduce the pollution in the air, resulting in both a cleaner and clearer night sky.”
We fly a bit too much. In summer we jet to Mauritius while the sun’s out at home and in winter we flock to Whistler when we could take the Eurostar to the Swiss Alps. We fly to Shanghai for a business when it could be done on Skype and we’d probably fly to the shops for a can of Coke if we could.
Sometimes you’ve just got to fly, but most of the time we can stay grounded and take a train. It’s quieter, calmer, more scenic, more stunning, more social, and last but certainly not least, more sustainable.
