Flying Carpet


This is an installation by Iranian artist Zakaria Farhad Moshiri, titled 'Flying Carpet,' at Christie's in Dubai (April 25, 2010). You can see what he's done, there. The cleverness is not in itself deep; the carpet aping the shape of an actual flying device. But there's friction too, for we ride on magic carpets (in story, at least) where we ride in planes. What lives 'in' carpets? Only mites, lice and dirt. Is this artwork implying the mite-iness of pilots? If so it might almost approach satire.
