Abstract English

The view from above, closely related to modern artistic perception, was new in respect to specific dynamic and irritation. This was caused by movement in three dimensions, and by sensory deprivation when flying at night and in clouds. The collision between the user surface of flight instruments and the senses had to be tackled. There was a new perception and new semantics of the earth and of the landscape of the clouds, harking back to a European cultural tradition. This created and spread a new kind of sensitivity, combining the lying machine, machine-induced perceptions and images of nature, and resulting in a techno-hybrid  aesthetics.
