We Are Caught Falling is imagined through a set of objects and their re-presentations in photography and sound, and the installation reveals the scene of a magical accident. A nebulous meteorite is caught on one side of an incomplete cube. Snagged in an instant, the amorphous shape unfolds, exposing its structure, balancing within a web of sound and reflection.

The objects exploit changeability of form through a series of sculptural and sound elements. They unravel their internal relationships as well as the lattice of their surroundings. As the quasi-crystalline structure is caught, falling, we are caught too, reflected in its descent. It poses the inescapable question: how long can we remain in stasis before the act of falling resumes?
