Panamarenko «Flying Machines»


Panamarenko
Brazil, 2004.

It is Panamarenko's great ambition to discover an energy source that can lift a spacecraft beyond the Earth's atmosphere. Twenty years ago, he promised Antwerp's Middelheim open-air museum and park the first viewing of his flying saucer. «I want to make a flying saucer motor that would work with the fourth dimension – this invisible force that controls the speed of light. And anything that works with the fourth dimension is very doubtful,» he says. «But it's not as silly as it sounds. It's not hocus-pocus. That would be terrible. It's an object that rotates and flies forward with two different speeds.» Who is to say that Panamarenko won't eventually find the answer, but as always, the inevitable question must be: Will it work, and if so, should it?
