Just minutes ago, a skywriting plane flew over the city, leaving a puffy trail of text in its wake: the word “cloud” repeated over and over again. Here’s a photo from Crown Heights of the unidentified plane’s aerial scrawl, also reportedly seen somewhere in Queens. The performance is reminiscent of the cloud drawings artist Vik Muniz flew over Manhattan in 2000, but it’s not clear who’s responsible, just that their work was blown away as quickly as it came. Update: Artist Ron English took credit for the sky tagging project.
