I.C.A.R.U.S, 2007
Collaboration [video, objects, performance, sound, print]

This large scale installation, accompanied by two evenings of performance, set out to question our reliance on the Internet as a primary source of entertainment and information. The I.C.A.R.U.S. space crew sought to explore our changing definition of play and escapism by constructing a rocket ship that offered a simulated experience of space travel. Visitors to the gallery were invited to board the vessel made primarily from salvaged material(cardboard, plastic, tape, felt, and other discarded goods), there were also two nights of performance during which the entire crew boarded the vessel and offered narrated "departures" to space every half hour.
