Flying Carpets, By Andreas Slominski




Throughout 1994, each bimonthly issue of Sky Lines, Austrian Airlines' in-flight magazine, included a new two-page spread by German artist Andreas Slominski.

Part of the Museum In Progress project, Slominski photographed Oriental rugs from the large collection at the Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna. "'The "Flying Carpets' could be placed on the aircraft folding tables and used for putting things on such as a glass, a plate, a postcard or a (Camel) cigarette."

Improbable as it seems, the project was not sponsored by Camel.
