Sky Cinema

Sky Cinema is a device that explores the human body’s relationship to film, and the idea of cinema influenced by the exterior environment within the public realm. The collective memory of cloud watching and star gazing become part of the familiar experience of lying down to view the world above, in this case that of the projected image hovering in the sky. Lying on the plinth , the hum of the projector can be felt underneath, as it is safely housed from the weather yet celebrated as a living organ that brings the Sky Cinema to life. Engaging the public realm, the Sky Cinema becomes a lantern which sits in its chosen context evoking curiosity to passers by.
