The Floating World

Clare Langan

Description

‘Clare Langan’s The Floating World is a multi screen film which presents a sensitively poetic message about possible futures and our place in the world. Shot in three contrasting locations, the viewer is led through haunting and elegaic landscapes where white ash, snow and dust, swirls and settles, prompting thoughts of a world devasted and beyond habitation. The Floating World questions the relationship between mankind and the earth.’ (Sourced from http://www.visualcarlow.ie/exhibitions/info/the-floating-world on June 12th 2016)
