Modes of Departure(2008)
Video Installation dimensions variable

Sound from inside aircraft taxiing for departure is played from speakers situated in
forms resembling jet engine nacelles, while video volumes, each comprised of
images representing one of the five distinct periods of transience throughout
artist's life, are projected into the nacelles, where each reflects off of a mirrored
speaker cone and onto a nacelle's interior walls.  
The energy and feeling of departure affects the perception of reality.
