While walking with his aunt one day, a little boy looks up at the sky and says, “The sky touches every single world.”
So profound, yet so simple.
The sky. It seems like ours, so close to this earth, so much a part of our weather, our daily life. But the sky doesn’t end when it reaches the earth’s atmosphere; it continues for billions of light years.
It’s easy to get caught up in our everyday lives. Our own concerns become everything.
Sometimes we forget that we are more than our important work, our pressing daily tasks. We forget that life stretches far, far beyond this. And yet it’s all contained in one moment.
Now is the time to remember that each moment, each mark, each breath is our true home.

For this site-responsive installation, I am using large sheets of various lightweight materials painted or spray painted with acrylics and suspended from the ceiling. Viewers will be invited to recline on a padded platforms to view the piece, mimicking the experience of watching clouds flow by in the sky.
