THE SCULPTURE: Jet Kiss, a colossal sculpture by artist Mike Ross comissioned by the City of Seattle. Two Vietnam-era A4 Skyhawk jets have been taken apart and put together like origami folding cranes.
THE TASK: Thirty jet segments must be moved by crane without a scratch
THE SOLUTION: Special carriages had to be built for each piece to be painted. Each piece required a crane to move, yet could not be scratched once the paint was applied. This requires a tremendous amount of focus and concentration for each move.
THE RESULT: Due to be unveiled this year
