A video essay by Gianluca Giannone and Blinking City showcases the flying model ships designed by 83 year old Luigi Prina. At the age of 16, the Italian architect won his first national aircraft modelling competition and has been committed to creating unconventional flying machines, like boats and bicycles ever since.
The video and accompanying photography is entitled 'Luigi Prina: The Ships that Sailed Through the Clouds.' The incredible artwork showcases not only Prina's immense collection of miniature flying model ships, but also has a whimsical style to it. The images and flying machines themselves have an imaginative, magical quality to them. The stills resemble a scene from 'The Sword in the Stone' while also calling to mind Captain Hook's flying vessel The Jolly Roger.
