This public art installation explores how narratives of ecological and humanitarian crises are depicted through visual media as ways that preserve, maintain, and uphold certain ideologies, even at the expense of reality. In one of the projections, the illusion of perfection is preserved through the manipulation of the image. The other projection portrays the world in a constant state of disarray - where humans struggle with their shortcomings in the face of the reality of a changing planet.
This public video installation shows two distinct and peripheral perceptions (realities) of two scenes. One of these projections depicts a clear blue sky next to a dancer in a perpetual fouetté turn, while the other portrays a sky interrupted by harsh waves of wildfire next to a dancer attempting to execute the fouetté turn, but frequently falling out of it.
If you look closely at each video, you can see that the two projections derive from the same footage, however, in one of them, a blue sky has been added to mask the smoke and a short excerpt of the dancer’s turn has been looped to present a falsified image of perfection.
