The Idea. This installation was created by Robin Riley; (his second installation for Building Sight); the following is his description of it. "Ghost Riders In The Sky (title of song) was used as sound for the event. The shift from church to community arts centre is a great cultural conversion but should be seen as a natural event. The installation is about regeneration and transition, many creation myths have at their centre part formed people - music of the spheres (pop songs) - falling to earth from space. I included a parachute to ensure a safe landing in an unfinished building which will be come a creative centre for the future.
How It Worked.
