Falling through the Divine references the modernist foundations of Canberra and its innate ability to be captured by the viewer in single modernist windows. Breaking down the built Canberra into the Bauhausian foundations of the Circle, Square and Triangle. When suspended the work forces the viewer to view Canberra through this modernist framework and revie their surroundings through the artist’s lens.
