"The century of people helplessly seeing others, who were close to them, disappear over the horizon".
This work is a response to global migration crises and the moral challenges they pose. As long as we have natural disasters and wars, we will have the displacement of people who are looking for safety and a better life. Where they land, they change local cultures. It is a world in flux with each person transformed at the point of contact and little achieved without community.
for context, the complete exhibition is 95 ft. and ceiling is 9.5 ft.

This exhibiton has been adapted from two previous installations; the first at Gallery Stratford, curated by Angela Brayham, 2019 and the Karachi Biennale, 2019 curated by Muhammad Zeeshan.
I was also thrilled with the Air North part of my trip flying over Whitehorse to Old Crow at sunrise, Inuvik and on to Dawson CIty. It still seems like a a magical incantation.
