When Little Worlds Collide

“When Little Worlds Collide” June 2016, Glasgow School of Art. Title borrowed from Black Sabbath´s song: National Acrobat.

The Hand is standing in front of a window, facing towards the last glimpse of the sun rays on a summer solstice evening. The Moon Globe on the left-hand side depicts human achievements and ambition, it is collaged from the printed images of James Nasmyth´s and James Carpenter´s moon studies from the latter part of 19th century. The Cross with its blinking lights is pulsing, sometimes restlessly, sometimes changing smoothly from green, red, purple to blue, all surrounded by black waves painted on the walls. This installation looks into the eye of a contemporary world and the challenges it is facing.
