The Sky Is Falling, made of wood, beeswax, and fishing line, measures 12 feet by 8 feet by 12 feet.
There is an old saying, "The sky is falling." I am constantly in between fearing that statement to be true: fearing the world, and being in awe of it. I use another old saying to fight my fear. That saying is, "If you do something enough times you'll no longer fear it." Repetition is the safest way I know how to subdue my fear that the sky will fall. This installation is the easiest, clearest way I know how to explain the state of crossroads that I live in.
