For a 12-hour event we set out to create the landscape of a shattered greenhouse. Movements were slow and at times unnoticeable. Impacted walls of glass were hung from above – a tree with lit fruits hovered above. Projections were small and unassuming. The audience were handed small lights they could place anywhere in the room. Most people lay in the floor, some slept, some stayed the full length, others went away and returned. The feeling of rain without hearing it. Flowerbeds of sage were placed below the glass so they could be touched and smelled.
