In order to escape the labyrinth in which they had been locked, Daedalus built wings for himself and his son Icarus. Flying they would be free. Icarus' enthusiasm to take flight caused him to get too close to the sun, the heat melted the wax that attached the wings to his back and he ended up plunging into the sea, where he drowned. P>
Throughout history a relationship has been established between the human being and the sky, between the desire to FLY and the physical and symbolic meaning that it entails.
This produces a dynamic of opposing and complementary elements in flight: the eternal and ascending against the perishable and descending, the hope and anguish of the act of learning to fly and thus rise or fall against the ground: life and death.
You want to FLY to go from one place to another, although many times we rush into the void like Icarus.
Start the flight, that's poetry.
