Matt Kennedy has always been curious about the straight white lines that can sometimes be seen cutting across the sky. He likes to imagine where they might lead as they leave behind their impression on the atmosphere; a gesture that suggests empty space has potential. Most commonly known as “contrails”, these marks can be attributed to the condensation of water vapor emitted by aircraft engines. Everything about their presence suggests that something is happening, but once the trail begins to dissipate it becomes an artificial cloud that eventually disappears, leaving no indication that it ever even existed.
