The Falling of the Sky
A playful piece about the phenomenon of catastrophe, Falling of the Sky alludes to the story of “Chicken Little” a children’s parable about causing unnecessary panic as a topical commentary on the modern media’s perpetual mood of doom.

An enclosed room combines three visible walls, artificial turf, projected images and an underground tunnel. Contrasting the claustrophobic sensation of being underground and the dreadful black circle cut from the sky are the bright green hues of grass and a blue sky.
This interactive installation invites the viewer to venture into the tunnel and encounter the missing piece from the image of the sky, below ground.
"We have a constant diet of doom and foreboding from the media.”
