The sky is a constant in our lives, day and night, undisturbed by and oblivious of what’s going on beneath it, it holds a special significance for us as human beings. The state of lying down and looking at the sky is often one of contemplation and a dreamlike disassociation of ones
actual surrounding .It stimulates your mind to take you away and to withdraw from the reality of live.

screen test #2 installation sketch

Looking at the sky, the environmental sounds of your location however are the only factor to keeps you linked to the actuality of a specific time and place. You can hear the physical place of the body, while you see the sky of an imaginary land.

Screen test #2 is part of a series of works, filming the sky form the perspective of someone looking up, entranced, escaping into the dreamlike reality of the mind. This fantastic state of enchantment is emphasised by the audible component of the work, constructed in its components and composition, to evoke the drift between realism and surrealism, actuality and dream.
