I decided on a new and different approach to portray the beauty of aerobatics, focusing on shape and form.
Like the thousands of others who were delighted and enthralled that night, I stood in silence, captivated by the spectacle of this elegant, graceful, and spectacular night act.
I named this piece “Chrysopelea” since the perfect organic shape of the light trails reminded me of the Chrysopelea snake soaring through the sky.
