Unbearable Lightness / Communication Installation

Unbearable Lightness
Unbearable Lightness

A man is being carried off by a bunch of balloons, floating into the sky. The floating body is in an unstable and somewhat precarious position. Is this “floating free” real or imaged? There is a constant struggle between weightiness and lightness, yet without one, the other cannot exist. In a sense, we desire a life full of lightness, yet we are bombarded with the weightiness of living as we constantly move and shift. This installation “unbearable lightness” takes the audience on a journey through the designer’s mind as they explore “gain and loss” to extinguish the lightness, weightiness, and value of living.
