Our Sky

While living in Turkey and North America I have been struck by the frequent presence of aircraft in our skies. These ever-present machines can be seen as symbols of military power and our increasingly globalized world.

Our Sky combines and contrasts new media with industrial scrap materials in its design. Activation occurs upon the presence of an airborne plane within 10 km of the installation, triggering a fan through Arduino and JavaScript programs. This causes the stimulation of planes suspended over a concrete landscape.

Our Sky makes the invisible every-day patterns of air travel, visible. By raising questions about how we connect, environmental responsibility, aerial warfare, and food security, Our Sky offers an opportunity for interaction, reflection, and discussion.
