Artist Statement:

 

Our times are characterised by transience, impermanence and change. The computer generated sequence Fly High - Time Flies is composed of a swarm of artificial flies. They slowly appear, propagate and gradually cover the whole ICC Tower, before flying away again. Short swarming sequences and text messages with various plays on words such as fly, flies, high, times, life, growth, moment, feeling and change will appear. These messages remind us of the ephemeral moment, just like a mayfly, they symbolise time passing fast.
