THE SKY IS COMING
The Sky is Coming
Two-channel video installation & olfactory component
The Sky is Coming is a multisensory two-channel video installation that depicts an ecosexual encounter between a thunderstorm and its human lover. A perfume created from the blooming Bradford Pear Tree serves as an olfactory component. This work ponders the technological mediation of our natural surroundings and the erotic forces at play in the efforts to erode anthropocentricity.
The Sky is Coming premieres in the group exhibition Home Bodies which is on view April 13 - May 7, 2021 at the Center for Art Design & Visual Culture at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Virtual exhibition can be viewed at homebodies.work.
