In this landing lets commemorate the airwaves
that left us dumbstruck in the wake of an empty package.
We blushed in unison for our own absent audience.
Let's see red in this Owlglass.
For Till’s Landing, White will be exploring the concept of mass embarrassment. She will be presenting a site-specific installation exploring this theme as it relates to the international news story of the “Balloon Boy”. The Balloon Boy is a nickname given to a hoax event in Colorado in which a couple released a large balloon into the atmosphere and falsely told authorities their son was inside, their claim attracted international attention and military intervention. White’s interest falls in the escapist nature of the media attention given to the incident in addition to the moments following the discovery of the couple’s false claims, when the majority of those watching found themselves duped. White seeks to capture the enigmatic nature of a personal emotion on a grand scale.
