Ever since the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City, it is difficult to walk around a big city without recalling the image of the disaster violently burned into our memories. All big city skylines, with towers and airplanes passing overhead, evoke that monumental terrorist attack. The image of the city skyline has become a symbol of former strength that has broken and collapsed. The video installation work addresses this image of brokenness and its presence in our minds. The work both weaves together and unravels the human disaster, while simultaneously bringing us closer and distancing us from it. It sends the disaster into a natural primordial/futuristic space, creating an imaginary world that is timeless and, most importantly, more elastic.
