Looking Up

Projection • Santa Cruz, CA • 2015

Looking Up critically re-imagines the experience of giving character to clouds. Clouds pass by on a ceiling overhead, loosely pulling form from salient objects within the life of children in contemporary American culture. How does the nostalgic act of interpreting clouds change when there is an equal chance of finding a dinosaur and a currency symbol? Numbers, vehicles, and commercial objects march side by side across the sky with the classic fantasies of our childhood.
