Propellers have always fascinated François Azambourg. The propeller carries with it the idea of rotation, movement, propulsion and speed... The propeller is at once simple and sophisticated: its calculations and measurements require the attention and knowledge of a specialist. It needs to be constructed in such a way that the speed of the blade gradually increases as it moves away from its axis. The propeller has always been a source of fascination: artists like Robert Delaunay made it a symbol of modernity and apparently Blaise Cendrars designed a propeller for a biplane... François Azambourg likes propellers. Not surprising therefore that he should have two ‘fluttering’ above one finger!
