Into The Abyss (2021)
Conceptual Design | Installation
Have you ever been up somewhere really high, looked down and had the urge... to jump?
This feeling has a name — the call of the void, or l'appel du vide in French, where the term was first coined. Some people feel it, some don't. Most people ignore it, but not everyone does.
The installation, Into the Abyss is a critique on our human instincts. The above example shows that our guts can tell us contradictory things, and if we truly embrace the intrusive thoughts we have from time to time - that can lead to unimaginable consequences.
You cannot trust your instincts if you don’t know what they are truly telling you.
By participating in this installation and in such close proximity to danger
of hanging knives, the viewer can soon find the call of the void creeping towards them - it is up to them to decipher if what their brain is telling them is what they truly want.
