It is remarkable how our perception of the ground can change dramatically when we see it from the sky. We interact with the ground everyday of course, but it is only when we are lifting up into the air, peering out of a tiny window as a rumbling airplane traces an arc of a great circle through the sky that we can truly, amazingly, see the ground. The sky starts on the ground is an effort to capture this feeling. As you walk the distance from one end of the piece to the other, a surprising transformation takes place. The downturned arcs of woven material that trace delicate lines through the air like planes taking off and landing merge and reveal a hidden landscape and remind us that what we consider ordinary is only a matter of perspective.
