Michael Young continues to take us on flights of fancy. His exuberant optimism is evident in the silvery feathers that lead us to look higher and higher. Each step of a helix can be considered another trip around a coil or it can lead to a point of conclusion.

With “Winged Helix” it is clear that there is nothing tight or redundant. These feathers provide an opening that reaches up and offers a clear view. Outstretched, these feathers glide along an axis that will entice and provide safety. The upward sloping curve is a certain sign of good things to come.
