Fear of Flying is a cloud-filled construction with multiple horizons set vertically parallel to each other. One contains a terrestrial scape with grass and trees, while the rest focus on more cerebral cloudscapes. The project opens by rushing in upon the land-oriented level, giving the impression of a fall– thus underscoring the title.
