Re-Imagining Our Footprint: Hannah Skoonberg - Fear of Falling
“I spend a lot of time thinking about the landscape and our place within it. In these 3 prints that connection is one of tension and some discomfort. They are all traditional landscapes in one sense, but they are not comfortable easily understood visual space. For me that tension is what I think about when I think of the ecological crisis. A desire to connect with the natural world that is obscured or out of focus.
Fear of falling is a vision of the night sky turned into a vortex. As if you would fall up into it. It's like the feeling of vertigo when you are in a planetarium and the movement of the stars makes you feel like you will fall over.”
